PITTSBURGH — After closing in one direction on Wednesday, Route 30 in East Pittsburgh is now completely closed to traffic after a severe dip formed in the road, PennDOT announced.
The closure went into effect about 1 p.m. Friday
The landslide on a hill in that area is causing a portion of the roadway to sink and threatening apartment buildings below.
Officials said Route 30 will be closed in both directions for the long term.
All eastbound traffic will be detoured at Electric Avenue in North Braddock using the following route:
- From eastbound Route 30, all traffic will take the ramp to Electric Avenue toward East Pittsburgh/Turtle Creek
- Turn right onto Braddock Avenue
- Turn left onto East Pittsburgh McKeesport Boulevard
- Turn left onto Navy-Marine Corps Way
- Turn right onto eastbound Route 30
