Portion of Jacoby Road in Harmar to close for 3 months

Emily Balser

A portion of Jacoby Road in Harmar will close Wednesday and remain closed for about three months, Allegheny County announced Tuesday.

The road will be closed between Rosedale Road and Ecker Lane. The closure is part of a $1.1 million bridge replacement project that also includes improvements to the pavement, guardrail and signage in the area.

The posted detour will use Nixon Road, Hite Road, Route 28, Route 910 and Rich Hill Road. O

Officials expect about another month of lane restrictions after the three-month closure.

The work was originally scheduled to be done earlier this year, but was delayed because of trout season. The bridge runs over Little Deer Creek.

The work is being done through the Allegheny County Public Works Department with Carmen Paliotta Contracting as the contractor.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com 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.
