The City of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania has recently started a nearly $1M landslide remediation project on the City’s north side, but it is only one of nearly 20 landslide sites affecting public rights of way being monitored by the City. The total cost of remediating these sites is anticipated to reach the $8M mark this year, and the City’s landslide task force is hoping to get state funding to help with the repairs. The total cost for remediating all of these sites is around $12M.
“These are large and small slide activity zones,” said Karina Ricks, director of the city’s Department of Mobility and Infrastructure. “The large ones where we expect significant capital construction projects, we have more than half a dozen in design right now.”
