Topography is destiny

Yet another Pittsburgh hillside collapse in the morning news.  Maybe it is time to reinvigorate the City of Pittsburgh Hillsides Committee? I'll donate the image to the left as a logo.

Costly for sure, but one of those things far more costly to ignore. For more read:

Not just a city issue for sure.  Has anyone checked in of late on the status of the Kilbuck landslide site? Just be thankful that all happened before they completed the Walmart and something like that happened when occupied.

I was thinking about what the impact would be if this happens when the Greenfield Bridge is closed, since Swinburne is one of the few alternate routes to Greenfield Avenue.
