The Department of Public Works announced that the westbound lane on part of the 200 block of Waterworks Road in Sewickley is closed due to a landslide that has undermined part of the road. The eastbound lane remains open to traffic, and Public Works engineers have determined it is safe for drivers.

Two-way traffic will be maintained at the lane closure using stop signs. Drivers can expect to experience short stoppages at the closure.

The westbound lane on that section of road likely will need to remain closed until a retaining wall can be built to support the roadway. There is not yet a timetable for when that work will occur. When those plans are finalized, that information will be provided to the public via press releases, Facebook, Instagram, X (formerly Twitter), Nextdoor, and Allegheny Alerts.

Waterworks Road is used by an average of 700 drivers daily.
