Delmont’s 2018 road paving program is slated to begin the week of Sept. 17, 2018, weather permitting.

Fallout from Hurricane Florence and the upcoming Apple’n Arts Festival could both affect when Delmont’s 2018 paving program gets under way.

Work on sections of East and West Pittsburgh Street, Delmont Avenue and Tollgate Lane is set to start the week of Sept. 17, but it is dependent on weather.

“I’ve made it clear to the pavers that they can’t start the work and then have it get torn up (by traffic) during the Apple’n Arts Festival,” borough Councilman Stan Cheyne said. “So if they can’t get started (the week of Sept. 17), we may not see them until after Apple’n Arts.”

The $199,000 contract includes $96,000 from the borough’s general fund, and $103,000 in liquid fuel funds supplied by the state.

Crack sealing is also slated to take place this fall, though a specific date has not yet been set.

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.
