Landslide causing traffic delays in Penn Hills

A volunteer firefighter directs traffic at the intersection of Frankstown and Beulah roads in Penn Hills due to a landslide on Frankstown Road (Route 380).

A landslide has led to a partial road closure in Penn Hills on Frankstown Road, said a PennDOT spokesman Thursday.

The road, also known as state Route 380, has been restricted to alternating, single-lane traffic between Beulah Road and Erhardt Drive as road crews address the landslide, said Steve Cowan, PennDOT spokesman.

Cowan was not immediately available to comment on other damages the landslide may have caused.

Flooding has been reported in multiple areas across the county as rain pelted the region Thursday. Areas covered by flash flood warnings include Pittsburgh, Millvale, Penn Hills, Mt. Lebanon, Bethel Park, Ross, McCandless, Monroeville, McKeesport, Franklin Park, Shaler, Plum, West Mifflin and parts of Westmoreland County, according to the National Weather Service.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using 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.
