Pittsburgh police have the section of the road down to one lane because the road has buckled.

Pennsylvania American Water officials said a 10 inch water main along the road ruptured, causing low or no water pressure to about 10 customers.

Crews shut down two northbound lanes between Norwood Avenue and Nobles Lane to fix the problem.

PWSA officials said they estimate the work to be completed by Saturday night.
