Port Authority announces temporary stop changes in Glen Osborne

| Thursday, Nov. 29, 2012, 12:45 p.m.

If you use Port Authority's route 14 line through Sewickley and Glen Osborne, take note: some stops temporarily have been discontinued and others added due to the closure of a portion of Beaver Road in Glen Osborne.

These changes are expected to remain in effect through Sunday, Dec. 23, on weekday and weekend service, according to an alert issued by the transit agency.

The closure is part of a $4.5 million Glen Osborne Interconnect Project, replacing water, gas and sewer lines.

Beaver Road closed Nov. 28 to all traffic from Sycamore Road to its intersection with River Road and Route 65.

A sign near Beaver and Chestnut streets in Sewickley warns drivers of the closure. Chestnut Street in Sewickley is the only road with a traffic light heading southbound on Route 65, allowing drivers to turn left onto the state highway, before the River Road intersection in Glen Osborne.

“Due to the lack of available streets intersecting between (Route 65) and Beaver (Road), buses must begin or end detours as far back as Boundary Street on the inbound (route), and McKown Street on the outbound (route),” a Port Authority release said.

On Thursday, some Port Authority drivers on inbound routes were using Chestnut Street in Sewickley, bypassing several stops before the agency's posted detour.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
