Bridge project in Jeannette delayed until Sept. 17, PennDOT says


PennDOT said construction on the North 4th Street bridge in Jeannette has been delayed for the second time this month until the week of Sept. 17.

Construction on the bridge that spans Bull Run was scheduled to begin Monday. The project is slated to be completed in late October, PennDOT said in a news release.

In the event of inclement weather, the schedule could change again, according to PennDOT District 12 spokeswoman Valerie Petersen.

During construction, automobile drivers will detour along East Gaskill Avenue, 14th Street and Route 130 (Harrison Avenue). A truck detour will follow Oakford Park Road or Route 4003, Route 66 (Sheridan Road) and Route 130 (Harrison Avenue).

This bridge is being replaced under the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project, a public-private partnership.

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.
