Gas company work causes Whitehall road closures

| Wednesday, July 24, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

Nightly closures of Provost Road, Stewart Avenue and Fairhaven Road will continue through Friday, as Columbia Gas crews work in the area.

The road closures, which went into effect Monday night, run from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. on the three South Hills streets.

Whitehall police Chief Donald Dolfi discussed the closures at last week's council meeting.

The detours will be clearly marked, and motorists are encouraged to plan their travel accordingly, Columbia Gas representatives said this week. Police and flaggers will be in the area to direct local traffic. The roads will remain open outside of working hours.

Columbia Gas representatives said there are plans to close the same streets for three to four days during the day for additional work. Times have not been finalized.

Dolfi said that work likely would take place next week in the Provost Road area.

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.
