EAST PRICE HILL - (FOX19) - A major West Side road partially shut down Monday for three months.
Westbound Elberon Avenue is blocked until mid-January between Maryland and Mt. Hope avenues.
The road closed to accommodate equipment and crews installing a retaining wall to stabilize the hillside on the north side of Elberon just east of Mt. Hope, city officials say.
Motorists are being detoured onto Warsaw Avenue.
Detour signs are posted, and pedestrians, local residents, police and fire department personnel are allowed at all times, city officials say.
Eastbound Elberon heading into Downtown is remaining open to through traffic.
The project includes the construction of a retaining wall nearly 200 feet long and 12 feet high. The retaining wall’s foundation will be composed of drilled piers that extend at least 8 feet into bedrock.
