Ramp work to close onramp to Route 28

| Monday, Aug. 10, 2009, 12:00 p.m.

Work on improving the ramp from Burtner Road to inbound Route 28 at Exit 15 in Harrison begins today, PennDOT District 11 said.

The on- and offramps connecting southbound Route 28 to Bakerstown Road at Exit 16 that have been closed since July 27 were to be reopened to traffic this morning.

The southbound Route 28 onramp from Burtner Road is to be closed from 9 a.m. today around the clock through late August to allow the work to occur, PennDOT said. Crews will be concrete patching on the ramp. Signs will be posted during the closures.

The work is part of a $6 million project that includes concrete patching, guide rail upgrades, new signs and other improvements on Route 28 from Exit 13 to Exit 16. Single-lane closures will occur Mondays through Saturdays, except during the inbound rush hours of 5 to 9 a.m. weekdays.

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.
