Saxonburg Boulevard closed daily for slide repairs

Tawnya Panizzi

Landslide repairs along Saxonburg Boulevard in Indiana Township will necessitate a detour for motorists through the first week of August.

Work near Harts Run Road was expected to begin today, PennDOT announced.

Specifically, Saxonburg Boulevard will close from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays between Harts Run and Klein Road.

The suggested detour is Harts Run to Middle Road back to Saxonburg Boulevard.

Slide repairs are scheduled to continue through Aug. 6. The road will reopen to traffic at 3 p.m. each day.

Also in Indiana Township, work on McClellan Road was scheduled to start this week and last four months.

A $1 million project is underway to replace Deer Creek Bridge No. 9.

McClellan Road will remain open to traffic throughout the project using a temporary causeway downstream from the existing bridge, officials said.

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.
