Allegheny County officials expected to reopen Wall Avenue in Wall to all traffic sometime on Friday.

A crew from A. Liberoni Inc. of Plum finished repaving the road on Thursday evening but said the asphalt had to cool before “road closed” signs could be removed.

East McKeesport police, who patrol Wall, continued to restrict traffic on Thursday evening.

The work is being completed well in advance of an expected reopening early next week.

The repaving job was undertaken after Wilkinsburg-Penn Joint Water Authority crews found and repaired a break in a 12-inch water main that burst on Tuesday evening near the First Student bus garage.

The break forced a closure of Wall Avenue between Station Street in Wilmerding and Coal Street in Wall.

Traffic was detoured through Wilmerding and East McKeesport to Route 30 and then to Route 48 in North Versailles Township.

While the line burst near an interconnection with Municipal Authority of Westmoreland County, neither utility reported service interruptions beyond air that had to be bled from pipes serving Wilkinsburg-Penn Joint customers in Wilmerding and North Versailles.
