Section of East busway temporarily closed due to landslide in Strip District | Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Part of the East busway between the 26th St. Ramp to Neville St. Ramp has been temporarily closed in both directions after a landslide Thursday, according to Port Authority spokesperson Adam Brandolph.

Mr. Brandolph said in a statement that a landslide occurred around 7:45 pm due to a Pittsburgh Water Sewer Authority water main break on the hillside near 26th Street in the Strip District.

“Initially buses were able to get by on one lane but about 10pm closed both lanes to allow room for removal efforts,” Mr. Brandolph said.

Mr. Brandolph says Port Authority does not anticipate the closure will go beyond midnight before single-lane operations can resume.
