Road closures in Verona rescheduled to Tuesday night

Michael DiVittorio

Temporary moving road closures that were expected to take place last week in Verona were rescheduled to Tuesday.

Closures would begin around 7 p.m. at Center Avenue between Allegheny River Boulevard and Diamond Way, move to South Avenue at Diamond and then James Street at Diamond.

Inland Pipe Rehabilitation crews will be cleaning and televising the sewers in the area. The work is expected to conclude early Wednesday morning.

Borough Engineer Matthew Pitsch said the three areas will not be closed all at once, and sections would be reopened as work is completed.

The work is part of a larger project to prevent storm water from entering the sanitary sewer system, and help reinforce pipes to avoid further costly repairs, Pitsch said.

IPR was awarded the $79,214 project to be paid in large part through a $53,154 federal Community Development Block Grant allocated by the Allegheny County Department of Economic Development. The rest will come from borough funds.

Another round of temporary road closures is expected to take place mid-January as part of the project.

TribLIVE commenting policy

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.
