Pittsburgh street to close for several weeks for bridge preservation

Renatta Signorini

A Pittsburgh street will close for more than two months starting Wednesday morning, according to Allegheny County Department of Public Works.

Ramp Street will be closed until mid-July for crews to preserve Streets Run Bridge No. 2. The street connects Mifflin Road to Baldwin Road near the Glenwood Bridge and Sandcastle Water Park, close to the border of Hays and New Homestead neighborhoods.

Bridge work will include a new latex concrete deck overlay, a sidewalk, repair to the guiderail and improvements to the road approaching the bridge, according to a county news release. Pugliano Construction of Plum is handling the work, which is part of a $2.2 million project addressing four structurally deficient bridges in the county.

Drivers on Baldwin Road can use Glass Run Road, Route 837, West Eighth Avenue, Forest Avenue, West Run Road, Interboro Avenue and Mifflin Road. Drivers on Mifflin Road can detour around the work by using Buttermilk Hollow Road, Lebanon Church Road and Lebanon Road.

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.
