Nadine Road in Penn Hills reopening pushed to December

Nadine Road in Penn Hills will continue to be closed until the end of December, the Allegheny County Department of Public Works announced Friday.

The section of the road between Allegheny River Boulevard and Lincoln Road has been closed since July 12 following storms that overturned the wall and caused a portion of the road to collapse.

Work began in August, when PennDOT expected the road to open back up to traffic this month.

Northeast Paving, a division of Eurovia Atlantic Coast, LLC, was contracted for the new retaining wall’s design and construction.

“The project has had unanticipated design delay and additional scope of work and also resulted in utility locations that needed to be addressed for the emergency construction of the new retaining wall adjacent to the road,” a public works news release said Friday.

Traffic has been detoured using Allegheny River Boulevard, Sandy Creek, Verona and Lincoln roads.

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.
