Portion of Saltsburg Road in Plum to be restricted to one lane

A sign says road work will begin on Saltsburg Road in Plum beginning April 1.

A section of Saltsburg Road in Plum will be restricted to one lane of traffic starting April 1 and lasting until possibly April 8, a Turnpike Commission spokeswoman said.

The lane restriction will be implemented from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. near the I-76 bridge on Saltsburg Road near Fazi Firearms, a gun shop.

The project, being done by Robinson-based Erdman Anthony & Associates, will prepare the road for a bridge replacement to take place in late spring of 2020, said Renee Colborn, a turnpike spokeswoman.

Colborn said a 3.5-mile section of the turnpike in that area will be widened when the bridge is replaced by the end of 2020, Colborn said. That total project cost, including the bridge replacement and highway widening, is $7.2 million.

Colborn said a date has not been set for the start of the widening project.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com 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.
