Road work to delay Carson Street traffic on South Side

| Wednesday, July 14, 2010

Drivers should expect delays on either end of Carson Street this weekend when parts of the road to the east and west will close for construction, PennDOT officials said.

East Carson Street between Becks Run Road and Hot Metal Street on the South Side will close from 9 p.m. Friday through 4 p.m. Sunday while workers mill and repave the roadway. Traffic will be detoured via the Hot Metal Bridge, Second Avenue and the Glenwood Bridge.

From 6 p.m. Friday to 6 a.m. Sunday, the inbound side of West Carson Street will be closed and the outbound side reduced to a single lane in the area beneath the West End Bridge. Crews will conduct bridge work overhead. Inbound traffic will detour through the West End Circle.

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.
