PITTSBURGH - An incline that gives sightseers a panoramic view of Pittsburgh and otherwise carries some commuters from Mount Washington into the business district will be closed for about a week.
Port Authority of Allegheny County spokesman Jim Ritchie says the Monongahela Incline closed about 10 a.m. Tuesday after workers noticed abnormal wear on a safety cable during an inspection the night before.
The cable used to normally run both cars of the incline was fine.
Shuttle buses will carry passengers from the incline's upper station on Grandview Avenue, atop Mount Washington, which overlooks the city's downtown area, to the lower station near Station Square.
