There will be new lane restrictions on Route 28 from East Deer to Harrison in both directions this weekend as work continues on a $34 million highway project.

PennDOT said single-lane restrictions will be in place from the Bailies Run Bridge (near Exit 13) in East Deer and the Natrona Heights interchange (Exit 15) in Harrison.

Here is the schedule:

• Southbound – 9 a.m. Friday morning, continuously through 5 a.m. Monday.

• Northbound – 7 p.m. Friday night continuously through 2 p.m. Tuesday.

The restrictions are related to a seven-mile stretch of Route 28 between Bailies Run in East Deer and the Buffalo Township line. Work includes concrete patching, an asphalt overlay, bridge preservation work, drainage and guardrail improvements, installation of a new automatic bridge de-icing system and lighting upgrades.

The whole project is expected to be done in late December.

About 50,000 vehicles a day use Route 28 in the area of the project. Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles by visiting www.511PA.com .

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.
