Delmont officials will seek bids for a 2019 road program that includes parts of West Pittsburgh Street, Stotler Drive, Cupp Way and Greensburg Street.

Borough council members voted unanimously to advertise the road program at their Feb. 12 meeting. In order of priority, the sections proposed include:

• The remainder of West Pittsburgh Street, from Harrison Avenue to the East Pittsburgh Street side, where it intersects with Greensburg and Freeport streets.

• Stotler Drive, along the small section that connects Route 66 and Manor Road, running behind the Sunoco fuel station on Route 66.

• Cupp Way

• Remediation of the crack along Greensburg Street

The road program will be finalized at a later date.

Council also addressed recent resident complaints about semi-trailer trucks using Pittsburgh Street and damaging the road.

Councilman Stan Cheyne said he’d looked into the possibility of enforcing a weight limit on Pittsburgh Street, but did not feel it was worth the cost to the borough.

“We don’t have police qualified to operate the scales, we don’t own the scales, and we don’t own a vehicle to transport the scales,” Cheyne said. “Based on the enforcement issues and the cost associated with it, I’d recommend not doing anything.”

Council also agreed to have its streets committee revisit the parking situation on Freeport Street, where some residents have complained that commuters parking in the borough and catching the bus, along with shoppers parking in the downtown business district, make it difficult for residents to find a parking spot near their homes.

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.
