Route 4022 Reis Run Road Reopens in Ross Township


Pittsburgh, PA – PennDOT District 11 is announcing Reis Run Road (Route 4022) in Ross Township, Allegheny County, has reopened to traffic.

Due to a land slide from private property, Reis Run Road has been closed to traffic between Rochester Road and Arndt Road since Friday, May 31.

“I am pleased we are able to open Reis Run Road and appreciate the patience of the community and motorists impacted by this slide,” said District 11 Executive Cheryl Moon-Sirianni. “Due to safety concerns and legal issues, the remediation work on Reis Run Road took much longer to begin than anticipated.”

Crews from Allison Park Contractors have completed the slide remediation work which included hauling 16,200 tons of spoils from the site and installing 9,680 tons of recycled concrete for the rock slope. Additionally, crews conducted house demolition work, drainage repairs, erosion control matting installation and seeding.

Approximately, 4,585 vehicles use the road on a daily basis.

Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles, including color-coded winter conditions on 2,900 miles, by visiting 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 950 traffic cameras.
