LeMont Resturant will remain closed following a Tuesday morning landslide on Mount Washington, the city Department of Public Safety said this afternoon.
The Bureau of Building Inspection is still accessing the hillside below the restaurant, spokeswoman Sonya Toler said, adding she's unsure when it will reopen.
"It's not indefinite, but it's not something you can predict," she said
After a swath the size of a football field tore loose from the face of Mount Washington early Tuesday morning, mud and trees blocked railroad tracks along West Carson Street and the Duquesne Incline was briefly closed.
