Pittsburgh Public Works
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.
Road crews are gearing up for the blast of winter weather expected to head this way this evening.
McArdle Roadway has reopened after crews performed maintenance on the hillside. The road was closed between the Liberty Bridge and Grandview Avenue on Mount Washington.
This morning’s storm brought with it the area’s first significant rainfall since Friday’s deadly flash flooding; but with resources at the ready, crews kept a close watch on Washington Boulevard.
While the thunderstorm didn’t last long Monday night as it swept through town, the damage it left behind will impact rush hour traffic for more than a week to come.
City streets, full of potholes in desperate need of paving, but before even one ounce of asphalt goes down this summer – there’s already a paving predicament. The Ravenstahl Administration submitted its list of summer road repaving projects to City Council over the weekend, and it’s raising concerns about whether politics is dictating what gets paved.
KDKA Investigator Marty Griffin reports 50 trash cash cans have been snatched off the streets. They are worth about $1,000 each.
It might make a lot of people angry to learn one city council member may be diverting money for paving into pet projects.
At a time when potholes in the city have reached a crisis stage – and spring has come – there should be paving crews resurfacing city streets. While the city is patching where it can, there’s still not a steamroller in sight.
A rock slide that shut down a busy roadway near Mount Washington early this morning has been reopened.
