Landslides have caused many roads to be closed across the area after the rain that fell Sunday into Monday.
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is targeting midsummer to reopen Route 30 after its partial collapse during a landslide, officials said Tuesday.
During a news conference, PennDOT officials said they hope to have a bid in place for a permanent fix to the road in the next 7-10 days. The plan will include a 400-foot wall to help prevent future landslides.
The landslide in early April not only caused significant damage to Route 30, but also led to the collapse of an apartment building.
People who lived in the collapsed building and in surrounding buildings were forced to evacuate. Some people might be able to return once the permanent wall is in place, officials said Tuesday.

No evacuations have been mandated at this point, but officials are asking residents to seek shelter somewhere else just in case.
