PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Fifth Avenue between Boulevard of the Allies and the Birmingham Bridge has been re-opened after a garbage truck partially fell through a concrete parking pad.
The truck was removed by a large crane nearly 13 hours after it fell Monday morning. The truck was placed on Fifth Avenue, safely off the parking pad.READ MORE: 100-Foot Slides At Mammoth Park To Reopen This Week
Allegheny Crane and Rigging was called around 10 a.m., nearly three hours after the truck fell, to help remove the vehicle.
“A great job by the crew,” said Kyrk Pyros of Allegheny Crane and Rigging.

The crane took almost two-and-a-half hours to set up, and the 60,000-pound truck was moved in a matter of seconds.
Everything went perfectly, Pyros said.
