Hulton Road near the Penn Hills/Plum border will remain one lane through at least the spring as PennDOT plans to remediate a landslide area.

A landslide occurred in the area of Hulton and Old Hulton roads Feb. 23.

It was one of at least 85 slides PennDOT District 11 crews addressed so far this year in Allegheny, Beaver and Lawrence counties.

District 11 spokesman Steve Cowan said planning has begun for the Hulton road repair.

“We have started the design work on the slide repair,” he said. “It’s going to remain in that single lane condition for a while. The plan is to have construction begin in the spring of next year. That’s when (we’ll) make the determination on what the repair will actually be and the restriction that goes along with it.”

He said it was too early in the process to estimate repair costs.

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.
