Beaver Road closure: Quaker Valley asking Osborne parents to put kids on bus Wednesday
Beaver Road and Glen Mitchell Road in Glen Osborne will be closed to all traffic — including Osborne Elementary School — Wednesday, Sewickley Borough Manager Kevin Flannery said.
The closure is necessary as crews continue working on the $4.5 million Glen Osborne Interconnect Project, replacing water, gas and sewer lines, Flannery said.
Beaver Road will be closed from McKown Street in Glen Osborne and Glen Mitchell Road will be closed at Weber Road in Aleppo.
The area will be closed between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.
No traffic will be able to reach Quaker Valley School District's Osborne Elementary School, so officials are asking parents of students there to put their kids on the bus Wednesday morning instead of driving them, according to an e-mail alert sent Tuesday afternoon.
In addition, police and ambulance authorities also have been notified, Flannery said.
The area affected is expected to reopen to traffic Wednesday evening, he said.

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 â 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.
