An Allegheny County paving project along Universal Road in the Penn Hills and Plum area is expected to begin Tuesday morning.

County Public Works Director Stephen G. Shanley said crews plan to repair about a three-mile stretch between Unity Trestle Road and North Josyln Drive within the next two to three weeks.

“We will start between 6 and 7 a.m., preparing our equipment, setting up traffic control patterns, and then beginning operations,” he said. “ We will work eight-hour days, but we might extend operations to complete certain paving tasks, such as base repair, scratch course, or paving of a certain section of road. Weather also will be a factor in planning our daily operations.”

Paving will start at the Unity Trestle intersection. Flaggers will be around work zones to help direct traffic. Total project costs have not yet been determined.

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.
