BELLEVUE (KDKA) — A collapsed retaining wall has closed down a section of Riverview Avenue in Bellevue.
According to an advisory from the borough, the road will be closed between Roosevelt and Division Avenues until further notice.
A large portion of the retaining wall collapse last Sunday and exposed a section of the street.

Borough officials say residents will be allowed to park their vehicles in designated areas on the west side of the road.
Officials say no timeframe has been set for repairs.
