Pittsburgh officials say a landslide that closed a popular Mt. Washington restaurant and the Duquesne Incline in April has stabilized, but they continue to monitor the area and a host of other slide-prone areas throughout the city.
Tons of boulders and dirt the length of a football field tumbled from Mt. Washington below theLeMont restaurant on April 8, blocking Norfolk Southern Railroad tracks along West Carson Street.
As a precaution, the city ordered the LeMont and the incline, on Grandview Avenue, closed. The restaurant remained closed for several days as engineers inspected the slide area and deemed the area safe.
