PennDOT said Monday that two local road projects are postponed.

PennDOT said an Allegheny Valley Railroad project to replace pavement at a railroad crossing in Baldwin Borough will begin at 9 a.m. Monday instead of this week. Work is expected to continue through 4 a.m. Oct. 31, PennDOT said.

Signs weren't posted in advance to alert motorists of the planned work on Streets Run Road between Missionary Drive and East Willock Road. The section of road is used by about 15,000 vehicles a day.

Also, PennDOT said it scrapped plans to close Route 28 southbound in the area of the Millvale exit from Friday night through Monday morning. The University of Pittsburgh and Pittsburgh Steelers both play football games at Heinz Field this weekend. The next Route 28 closure is scheduled for Nov. 9-12.
