Work crews are continuing to stabilize the hillside to the northeast of Nadine Road, after a landslide during the first weekend in May brought down a roughly 35-foot-wide swath of the hill, taking out trees and damaging the guardrail along the roadside.

County communications director Amie Downs said work is expected to last another two to three weeks.

Nadine Road is currently closed to “thru” traffic, but residents living along the road have local access. Drivers are encouraged to use Sandy Creek Road as an alternative route down to Allegheny River Boulevard.
