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

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
