Collier road to close for railroad repairs


A section of Vanadium Road in Collier Township will be closed next week for railroad work.

The Allegheny County Department of Public Works granted a permit to the Pittsburgh & Ohio Central Railroad Company to close Vanadium at the railroad crossing about 500 feet east of Aylesworth Avenue starting at 10 a.m. Monday for track replacement and paving. The road is expected to reopen Friday, Oct. 11.

Traffic will be detoured using Montgomery Avenue, Vanadium Road, Bower Hill Road, and Washington Pike (Route 50).

To help mitigate congestion in the area, police will direct traffic at the intersections of Greentree Road and Washington Pike as well as Greentree Road and Old Washington Pike from 3 to 7 p.m. Oct. 7 and from 6 to 9 a.m. and 3 to 7 p.m. Oct. 8-10. Additionally, police will manually operate the traffic lights at the intersection of Vanadium Road and Washington Pike during those times.

TribLIVE commenting policy

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.
