Guffey Road section closed for landslide repair in North Huntingdon

Patrick Varine

A section of Guffey Road in North Huntingdon has been closed as PennDOT crews work on landslide repair.

Guffey is closed between Turner Valley Road and Mickanin Road. The closure will last about two weeks, weather permitting.

Drivers coming from Irwin will turn left onto Mickanin Road and travel out to Robbins Station Road. Drivers coming from Turner Valley road will stay right on Guffey and travel to Mars Hill Road.

In PennDOT’s District 12, there are more than 280 active landslide locations as of late April, according to department press secretary Alexis Campbell.

Guffey was closed for several weeks in 2016, between Mickanin and Shaner roads, for a previous landslide.

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.
