Section of Hulton Road on Penn Hills-Plum border to close Wednesday

A sign posted on Hulton Road near the Penn Hills and Plum border shows a section of the road will be closed March 11, 2019.

A section of Hulton Road on the border of Penn Hills and Plum is scheduled to be closed from Wednesday to Friday.

Beginning early Wednesday, Hulton Road will close to all traffic between Michael Drive and Iowa Street so crews can locate underground utility lines in advance of a project to make landslide-related repairs. The road is expected to reopen by noon Friday.

Signs will be posted to guide motorists around the closure.

The section of road has been reduced to one lane since a February 2018 landslide.

The prep work is being done ahead of a repair project that is expected to cost up to $4 million. The project will be open for bidding by the end of April with construction expected to start by May, PennDOT spokesman Steve Cowan said.

The project includes 700 feet of road and shoulder reconstruction and installing a retaining wall.

PennDOT is paying for the work with the help of emergency state funding, Cowan said.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
