A section of Reis Run Road in Ross Township remains closed after a mudslide on May 31, 2019.

Motorists traveling through Ross Township are reminded that a portion of Reis Run Road remains closed while crews correct a landslide.

The road is shut down in both directions between Rochester and Arndt roads to everyone except local residents.

Other traffic will be detoured to Rochester Road where they can circle back to the other end of Reis Run.

A landslide on private property came down on May 31.

PennDOT geotechnical engineers are monitoring the site because the hillside continues to move, officials said Monday.

“In the interest of public safety, the department will keep the roadway closed until further notice,” spokesman Steve Cowan said.

Motorists can keep up to date on the work, along with other projects, at 511PA.com.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
