Bridge projects to affect traffic

| Wednesday, March 23, 2011 12:00 a.m

PennDOT announced several detours will be in effect during various bridge projects, including three bridge replacements in Westmoreland County.

— A bridge on Two Mill Run Road in Ligonier Township will be replaced, prompting daylight detours from April 5 through the end of July. The bridge is between routes 711 and 30. A detour will be in place from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday, using routes 711 and 30.

— A portion of Armburst-Hecla Road will be closed for bridge replacement from April 4 through the end of July. The bridge is between Route 819 and Hecla Road. The detour will be in place from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and uses routes 819 and 981, as well as Hecla Road.

— A section of West Newton Street in Hempfield will be closed for bridge replacement starting April 1 and running through the end of May. The bridge is between Adamsburg and Millersdale Road. The detour will be in place from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and uses Adamsburg Road, Route 30 and Millersdale Road.

— Tide Road in Center Township, Indiana County, will close for repairs to the Route 119 bridge March 29. The closure will be in place at the Yellow Creek Road/Mazza Street intersection under the bridge, where a temporary bridge support will be constructed. The bridge was restricted in June 2010 after beam deterioration was found. The temporary support will allow for unrestricted travel on Route 119 over the bridge. The restriction will be lifted once the temporary support is in place.

— Work will resume on the rehabilitation project of the Grafton Bridge on Campbell’s Mill Road over Blacklick Creek in Black Lick Township. The bridge is scheduled to close April 4, and a posted detour will be in place during the project, which is expected to be completed by the end of September. The detour uses Route 3013, Blacklick Road, and routes 217, 22 and 119.

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.
