Park-and-ride lot opens

| Tuesday, June 18, 2002

Port Authority of Allegheny County opened its newest park-and-ride lot Monday morning in Moon Township.

The lot, served by six buses on two routes, had 51 cars parked in it yesterday, according to Port Authority estimates. A permanent stoplight will be installed next month in the lot at one of the busiest roads in Moon Township. The 600-space lot brings to 9,500 the total number of parking spaces in the authority's 51 park-and-ride lots countywide.

Additional land at the site of the former Airways parking site has been set aside for future business development, and Delta Development Group will present a final plan to township officials for redevelopment of the corridor, formerly hotels and parking lots serving the old Greater Pittsburgh Airport in Moon Township.

The Port Authority could add an additional 400 spaces to the lot, making available a total of 1,000 spaces.

The lot was built as part of the West Busway project.

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.
