Replacement of a bridge on Route 119 will cause lane restrictions and will affect access to several businesses beginning Tuesday in Southwest Greensburg.

The lane restrictions will affect Route 119 traffic from Cribbs Street south to Huff Avenue, according to PennDOT. The restrictions will be in place from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. weekdays through July 10 and then will be in effect around the clock for a little more than a month.

Traffic impacts are expected to continue through Oct. 10 as crews replace the bridge over Zellers Run with a concrete box culvert and rebuild the road.

During the project, PennDOT will close the left-turn lane for southbound traffic headed from Route 119 to the Burger King and McDonald’s restaurants and a mini-storage facility. The Knights Inn hotel and several business offices are located behind the eateries, along a private road that crosses Jacks Run.

Southbound traffic will be directed to turn left at Huff and then turn north onto the private drive, just after the Dunkin restaurant, to reach the other restaurants and businesses.

Motorists headed north on Route 119 or exiting from Route 30 eastbound will have normal access to the businesses.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com 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.
