Projects could slow motorists through Ligonier

| Monday, March 31, 2003

Motorists traveling in the Ligonier area should be advised of two road projects that begin today, according to information provided by PennDOT District 12.

A project on Route 30 between West Main and Walnut streets involves replacement of the bridge over Mill Creek near the sewage plant. Route 30 eastbound traffic will be crossed over at West Main Street to the westbound lanes and crossed back over prior to Walnut Street. Traffic will be limited to one lane in each direction.

The second project, on Route 711, is located between Nicely Road and Route 30. The bridge over Loyalhanna Creek at the Route 30 intersection is being replaced.

During the first phase of this project, Route 711 northbound and southbound traffic will alternate crossing the bridge in one lane, using the traffic signal at the Route 30 and 711 intersection. While in the second phase, traffic moving in both directions on Route 711 will each have a lane while the last section of the bridge deck is replaced.

The projects are set to be completed by the end of August, weather permitting. The contractor is Swank Associated Companies of New Kensington.

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.
