Residents who live on Eads Street in the Arlington Section of Pittsburgh contacted Channel 11 News about their concern regarding a road that’s falling apart.
Channel 11’s Jodine Costanzo (@WPXIJodine) talked with neighbors who said a hole in the street is causing the road to collapse into a nearby creek.
“People park here, and they’re afraid to back up into it,” Erika Morgan said. “Kids play in this neighborhood."
Morgan and others described the neighborhood as a small town atmosphere, but that may be causing them to be ignored.
“I think we’re forgotten about,” Morgan said.
This road is collapsing in Arlington. I talked to frustrated neighbors who say their kids can't play here #wpxi#pghhttp://t.co/RTBCcparYE— jodine costanzo (@WPXIJodine) January 22, 2014

Costanzo reported the blacktop began sinking about a year ago, but the ground has really shifted in recent months.
“I have two grandchildren and I don’t let them play out here. I’m afraid to let them ride their bikes,” Jay Eisel said.
Neighbors said they’ve reached out to city leaders about the road, but nothing has been done. They said they’re tired of living in fear, and plan to continue to fight until someone is done.
City leaders have not commented on the issue.
