PennDOT closures: Freeport Road tonight; Tarentum Bridge lanes Thursday
PennDOT has announced two major closures affecting the Tarentum area for Wednesday and Thursday.
Tonight, Freeport Road in East Deer Township and Tarentum will be closed in both directions from 10 p.m. through approximately 7 a.m. Thursday. Also being closed is First Avenue in Tarentum and Brackenridge.
Closing the roads will allow “super loads” carrying mill stands from a docking area on the Allegheny River to the Allegheny Ludlum plant construction site in Brackenridge.
The closure will occur from the Ninth Street Bridge in East Deer to Conroy Way in Tarentum. Northbound traffic will be detoured using Riddle Run Road to Butler Logan Road to Route 28 to Route 366. Southbound traffic will follow the same detour in the opposite direction.
PennDOT also announced a single-lane closure on the Tarentum Bridge on Thursday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

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.
