Fort Pitt Blvd., Mon Wharf lot open again after water main repairs

Sunday, Jan. 6, 2013, 10:32 p.m.
 

Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority crews finished repairing Fort Pitt Boulevard on Sunday evening after Thursday's water main break there, reopening the roadway and the Mon Wharf parking lot in time for Monday morning commuters.

A 12-inch cast-iron water line broke early Thursday, showering the parkway with water and shutting the intersection of Fort Pitt Boulevard and Wood Street until the pipe was repaired and temporary paving put into place. The road was reopened by 6:45 p.m. Sunday, spokeswoman Melissa Rubin said.

Work continued on another major water line break that occurred on Saturday morning beneath the South Millvale Avenue Bridge, which spans the East Busway and railroad tracks in Bloomfield.

A broken gas line had been capped and repairs to the 30-inch line were ongoing on Sunday night, Rubin said. Service on the East Busway, which had been diverted because of the break, was restored on Sunday night, dispatchers said.
