• PennDOT: Collapsed pipe partially to blame for Banksville Rd. flooding

    Updated:

    PITTSBURGH - The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation said a collapsed pipe is partially to blame for recent flooding on Banksville Road.

    PennDOT began work Thursday on the privately-owned property where the problem originated. Crews removed 100 feet of failed piping and said they plan to redirect water from the collapsed pipe that runs under the roadway.

    The property owner is responsible for the repairs.

    PennDOT said they will not know if their plan to correct the problem has worked work until the next rain comes.
