On April 7, 2018, a significant landslide resulted in the closure of Pennsylvania State Route 30in Allegheny County. The route is a principal artery to Pittsburgh and supports more than 22,000 vehicles per day. The slide demolished one apartment building, severely damaged another, and impacted a single-family home. The remediation of the S.R. 30 landslide and the attendance to the displaced residents were the epitome of the ultimate partnering and cooperative experience. Although not without challenges, the urgency and importance of the project was understood by all, and this project was completed three days ahead of an extremely aggressive schedule, and without injury. This could not have been achieved without the collaborative partnership between the designer, the multiple contractors, and vendors involved on the project, PennDOT, and FHWA.
