Parkway West inbound lanes to close this weekend

| Saturday, Oct. 1, 2005

PennDOT will keep the inbound lanes of the Parkway West closed throughout the weekend for paving work.

The good news is this is scheduled to be the last weekend closing on the parkway this year.

The inbound lanes are scheduled to remain closed until 6 a.m. Monday between Interstate 79 and the Route 22/30 ramps. The outbound lanes -- which carry traffic headed from I-79 toward Pittsburgh International Airport -- will remain open.

The state Department of Transportation hired Balfour Beatty Construction for $28.8 million to build a new set of ramps and bridge at the Settler's Cabin interchange. The parkway paving is part of the contract.

PennDOT cautioned motorists to either allow for extra travel time or avoid the area if possible.

Posted detours:

  • Route 22/30 east from Weirton: Route 60 south to Campbell's Run Road to the parkway.

  • Route 60 north from Crafton: link with Route 22/30 west, to Oakdale, onto McKee Road, to Route 22/30 east, to Route 60 south, to Campbell's Run Road, to the parkway.

  • Route 60 south: take ramp to Route 22/30 west toward Weirton, to Tonidale, to Montour Church Road, to Route 22/30 east to Route 60 south, to Campbell's Run Road to the parkway.

    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.
