While it’s uncertain just how much rain we’ll get, even just the risk of flooding spurs emergency crews to be proactive. They can’t afford to just watch and wait, so they create a plan of attack.
The City of Pittsburgh saw less snow than some places, but travel was still tricky around the area.
It was slow going for many drivers and walkers Monday morning, as local roads and sidewalks turned into slippery slopes thanks to freezing rain.
As the snow came down, the roads got progressively worse today. It got so bad that traffic came to a near standstill on the Parkway West. The storm arrived right on schedule and created whiteout conditions throughout the late morning hours.
After years of discussion, altering and meetings, a bill was passed Tuesday to allow advertising in the City of Pittsburgh.
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — There was traffic trouble for people traveling to and from Mount Washington this morning. A small landslide shut down McArdle Roadway for the second time just this winter. The slide happened right […]
While we’re not expecting the snow we got two days ago, some are still getting ready for the next round – especially since many people seemed to be caught off guard on Wednesday with the first big snowfall of the winter.
Stranded and frustrated – that was the story for many after a winter storm left local roadways across the area snow-covered and dangerous. Now, work continues to plow and salt them. From the City of Pittsburgh to areas north, east and south – it was the same everywhere.
The mystery of who owns Second Avenue is over.
City Controller Michael Lamb says the problem is all over the city – an uncoordinated paving schedule allows city crews to put markers down one day and tear them up a short time later in a repaving project.
He blames it all on bad planning.
One crew comes through and paints double lines on a long stretch of Steuben Street in the West End and a few minutes later, another crew comes along and tears up the same street for repaving.
It is weather that many thought we’d seen the last of for the season, but road crews with PennDOT and the City of Pittsburgh spent the day prepping for another round of snow.
After years of neglect, Rosecrest and streets throughout the city have become decayed and potholed, but now that the city is doubling its paving budget to $11 million , this stretch and 60 miles of other streets will get resurfaced this year.
It’s a bit of a manhole mystery. More than two dozen manhole covers have vanished. It’s happened all over the City of Pittsburgh.
It started in the dead of winter with a moderate rock slide. Now, $1 million later, the solution is a massive cement structure that has led to the reopening of the McArdle Roadway.
