Landslide Remediation to Resume in Swisshelm Park and Allentown

PITTSBURGH, PA (April 27, 2020) Contractors working with the Department of Mobility and Infrastructure (DOMI) are set to resume landslide remediation work in two city locations today. 

The sites are along Forward and Commercial avenues in Swisshelm Park and Arlington Avenue at William Street in Allentown. Motorists are advised to follow all posted detours. 

The reconstruction work will be performed in accordance with State guidance on social distancing and approved construction work. 

Slope stabilization also restarted last week on Semicir Street in Observatory Hill. Material removal will continue this week with initiation of construction of a retaining wall and engineered slope beginning after May 4. Work will take roughly four months to complete.
