Repairs on Diana Street started Monday in Spring Hill

Regis McGuigan of Diana Street in Pittsburgh’s Spring Hill Neighborhood stands next to a slide outside his home that has damaged the street. The slid is threatening one of his three garages next to his house.

A $900,000 project to build a retaining wall and repair a section of Diana Street is set to begin Monday in Pittsburgh’s Spring Hill neighborhood.

The city’s Department of Mobility and Infrastructure said the work is expected to take about six months. It will repair the damage caused by a February 2018 landslide that closed a short section of Diana Street near Ives Way.

Diana Street is one of several streets that were affected by landslides over the last year of record-breaking wet weather.

This is another part of the city’s investment in landslide remediation that also includes the $1 million response to the Greenleaf Street landslide in West End last year.

More than $8 million will be invested this year to protect and restore public rights of way, according to the Department of Mobility and Infrastructure.

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.
