Planned construction on the Parkway North, or I-279, will see the busy roadway reduced to one lane Saturday.

According to PennDOT the southbound, or inbound, side of the road will be reduced to a single lane from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. between the Camp Horne Road exit in Ohio Township and the Perrysville Avenue exit in Ross.

The restriction will be in place weather-permitting.

The construction is part of a $87.94 million Parkway North improvement project.

PennDOT says it will include concrete patching and paving, preservation of 30 bridges and 49 overhead signs, repairs to 29 walls, ramp repairs, lighting improvements, HOV repairs, sign upgrades, guardrail and drainage improvements, and an anti-icing system installation on bridges at the McKnight Road interchange.

Crews from the Trumbull Corp. and Lindy Paving are performing the work.

PennDOT asks that motorists use caution as they travel through the construction zone.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using 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.
