PennDOT: Reis Run Road closed until landslide stops, repairs are made

Tony LaRussa
A slide on May 31, 2019 sent mud, rock and trees onto a section of Reis Run Road in Ross Township. PennDOT officials said June 14, that the road will remain closed until the land stops moving and repairs can be made.

A section or Reis Run Road in Ross Township that was shut down May 31 due to a landslide will remain closed indefinitely because the land is still too unstable to begin repairs, according to PennDOT.

Reis Run is closed in both directions between Rochester and Arndt roads due to a landslide, which is from a private property, transportation agency officials said Friday.

Geotechnical engineers are monitoring the site as the hillside continues to move, PennDOT officials said.

A posted detour will take motorists traveling east onto Reis Run to northbound Rochester Road and back onto Reis Run. Westbound traffic will follow the same detour route.

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.
