Portion of Abers Creek Road in Monroeville to close for bridge repairs

| Thursday, July 5, 2018 3:18 p.m

A portion of Abers Creek Road in Monroeville was expected to close beginning July 9 for up to two months for bridge repairs.

The road will close between Cavitt Road and Northern Pike. Drivers still will have access to Sri Shirdi Sai Baba Temple, according to PennDOT spokesman Steve Cowan.

According to Allegheny County Department of Public Works, there are two bridges traversing Abers Creek on Abers Creek Road. The bridge to receive work will be the one closest to Northern Pike, Cowan said.

Alpine Village Drive to Cavitt Road will be the detour, he said.

The project is part of PennDOT’s $2 million local bridge bundling program. Plum-based Pugliano Construction Co. will perform the work.

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.
