A contractor will begin clearing a major landslide on the Great Allegheny Passage trail on Monday, the Steel Valley Trail Council announced.
The June 29 slide near Kennywood Park brought earth, rocks and trees down, temporarily blocking the trail until volunteers cleared enough material to allow users to get by.
Peter J. Caruso and Sons, the company that built the trail section, will use heavy equipment to clear the remainder of the slide and repair other trail damage near Commonwealth Avenue in Duquesne. Volunteers will serve as flaggers on both ends of the construction area and users may experience delays.
The trail council is hoping to complete the work by Wednesday.
