Cavitt Road in Monroeville still closed, officials determining scope of work

Officials in Monroeville are trying to determine the scope of work needed to reopen a municipal road that was closed almost 50 days ago. 

In an announcement posted to the borough website Monday, officials said they are looking into whether the issues that have caused Cavitt Road to be closed indefinitely can be fixed in-house or if the work needs to be bid out.

The municipality is working with its geotechnical engineers, Robinson-based Garvin Boward & Bieko, to determine how Cavitt Road will be repaired after water caused the road to shift.

Manager Tim Little said the road was observed by a Monroeville engineer, who said the road was “slipping more than it should.”

When Cavitt Road closed March 13, the municipality expected it to reopen within a few days.

The approximately two-mile road was still closed on March 22 when the municipality said it would be closed indefinitely.

Monroeville staff hopes to have “more information at the council agenda setting meeting,” which starts at 7 p.m. May 9.

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.
