PennDOT hopes to reopen Freeport Road at the site of a landslide late tonight, but a nearby section of the road will close at 10 p.m. for unrelated reasons.
The slide Monday night closed the road between Riddle Run Road in Springdale Township and the C.L. Schmitt-New Kensington Bridge in East Deer. Crews will remove debris from the area throughout the day, PennDOT spokesman Jim Struzzi said.
A previously announced closure of Freeport Road from the bridge to Conroy Way in Tarentum will occur as scheduled from 10 p.m. today to 7 a.m. Wednesday. That closure will allow movement of super-heavy mill equipment through the area.
