Subsidence closes Center Road in Plum

Lillian DeDomenic | For The Plum Advance Leader
Allegheny County closed a portion of Center Road in Plum, Tuesday, March 25, for safety reasons due to mine subsidence underneath the road surface.

Tuesday, March 25, 2014, 2:57 p.m.
 

A portion of Monroeville Trestle Road, known locally as Center Road, in Plum was closed to all traffic Tuesday because mine subsidence was causing it to collapse, Plum and county officials said.

The road is closed from south of Trestle Road to north of the Boyce Park main entrance, according to Allegheny County.

Plum police advised drivers to avoid Monroeville Trestle Road between Old Frankstown Road and Saltsburg Road. Traffic should detour by using Saltsburg Road to Pierson Run Road to Old Frankstown Road, according to the county.

Allegheny County will issue an emergency contract to repair the road. It was not known when repairs would begin or when the road will reopen.
