Part of Camp Meeting Road in Bell Acres closed indefinitely due to landslide

A section of Camp Meeting Road in Bell Acres is closed indefinitely due to a landslide, the Allegheny County Department of Public Works announced Friday.

Heavy rains on July 11 caused mud, rock and other debris to slide down the hillside onto the road, which is closed between Beech Ridge Drive and Fern Hollow Road.

In addition to cleaning up debris from the landslide, officials have hired a consultant to help determine what work will be needed to correct the problem to ensure the road is safe for travel.

No timetable has been set for when the road is expected to be reopened.

Officials said they are still working on a detour to direct motorists around the area of the slide.

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.
