Road closures in Whitehall and the City of Pittsburgh

| Monday, July 22, 2013, 5:36 p.m.

Nightly closures of Provost Road at Weyman, Stewart Avenue and Fairhaven Road will occur this week, as crews from Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania work in the area.

The road closures will run from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. on the streets, going through Whitehall and the City of Pittsburgh, Columbia Gas representatives and Whitehall police said.

The detours will be marked and motorists are encouraged to plan their travel accordingly, Columbia Gas representatives said today. 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.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
