School House Lane is scheduled to close on Aug. 23 and 24 at Route 31/711 in Donegal Township as part of a PennDOT road realignment project.

Plum Contracting is relocating a section of School House Lane so that it meets Route 31/711 directly opposite Mountain View Road, ending what had been a dog-leg intersection.

Meanwhile, drainage work is set to continue at the intersection of routes 31 and 381.

The work is part of a $19.8 million project to realign Route 31 at the Donegal interchange of the Pennsylvania Turnpike, with the addition of a signalized “T” intersection and installation of traffic signals and turning lanes at the intersection of routes 31 and 711.

The project also includes widening and paving of a section of Route 31 to provide for center turning lanes and to increase sight distances. Construction is expected to wrap up by early December.

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.
