Harmar bridge to close for 3 months for replacement project

Madasyn Czebiniak

A Harmar bridge will shut down this month and remain closed for three months for a $1.1 million bridge replacement project.

Little Deer Creek Bridge on Jacoby Road will close at 6 a.m. July 17, according to the Allegheny County Department of Public Works. The closure will be followed by another month of flagging or lane restrictions as work is completed, the county said.

Carmen Paliotta Contracting Inc. of South Park is doing the work, which will take place weekdays between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. The road closure will be required throughout the majority of the work, the county said.

Traffic will be detoured using Jacoby Road, Nixon Road, Hite Road, Route 28, Route 910, Indianola Road and Rich Hill Road.

The full project includes bridge replacement, paving, drainage, guide rail, signing and pavement markings, miscellaneous construction and safety improvements.

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.
