Re-opening of Route 30 After Landslide Welcomed by Brewster

The reopening of a section of U.S. 30 in East Pittsburgh that was closed due to a devastating landslide last April is excellent news for the region and will be well received by motorists and citizens, state Sen. Jim Brewster said today.

“This is excellent news for area residents who have faced travel difficulties since the road collapsed in April,” Brewster said.  “The roadway is used by locals and businesses and is a main access highway.

“PennDOT has done a wonderful job in moving quickly on the repairs.  All those who worked to repair the road, strengthen the foundation and promote safety should be congratulated for their hard work and diligence.”

The massive cleanup from a devastating landslide and reconstruction of a section of U.S. 30 began almost immediately following the collapse of the roadway.  The slide occurred when a wall gave way. 

“Local residents, motorists and businesses along the U.S. 30 corridor were impacted by the closure of the highway,” Brewster said.  “The governor, secretary of transportation, District Executive Cheryl Moon-Sirianni along with other state and county officials made resources available so the work could proceed without delay.”

An estimated 21,000 vehicles a day utilize the highway.  The artery had been closed in both directions.
