Ramp from 40th Street Bridge to Millvale to be closed Thursday into Friday morning

Michael DiVittorio

The ramp from the 40th Street Bridge to northbound Route 28 in Millvale will be closed for at least 20 hours starting Thursday morning.

The closure is happening so a Pennsylvania Water and Sewer Authority contractor can install an inlet to divert water away from the off-ramp.

Work is scheduled for 7 a.m. Thursday through 3 a.m. Friday.

Off-duty police officers will be stationed at the 40th Street Bridge intersection and the 31st Street Bridge intersection to reroute traffic until work is completed.

Authorities said it’s part of the continued effort to address a 60-inch water main leak. The line broke Monday causing a closure of the 40th Street Bridge ramp onto Route 28.

Any customer who needs additional information should call PWSA emergency dispatch at 412-255-2423­­.

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.
