PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Several roads around the area continue to be impacted by the weather-related landslides that happened earlier this week.

In Plum Boro, roadway repairs continue on Old Leechburg Road after the ground gave way back on Thursday between Ross Hollow Road and Lee Ann Court.

According to PennDOT, crews will soon shut down the road in that area long-term. The closure will begin at 7 a.m. on Tuesday, May 24 and run through June 8.

Officials with PennDOT say traffic will be detoured using Sardis Road onto Leechburg Road.

In Glenfield, crews are still working on the slide on Route 65.

PennDOT closed the northbound lanes again today. The closure will run through 3 p.m. Monday.

In Washington County, crews are using special equipment to clear giant boulders and debris from Route 88 in East Bethlehem Township.

It’s expected to take three to four weeks to clean up that mess.

Meanwhile, over on the West Busway, work continues to clean up a landslide that happened Thursday between the Sheraden and Ingram stations.

Several bus routes continue to be detoured. The Port Authority expects the busway to be closed through the weekend, but hopes to have it reopened by Monday if not before then.
