The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) plan to hire a contractor  to repair a portion of Route 30 that was wiped out earlier in April by a major landslide in East Pittsburgh, according to a report from TribLive.

Bids were due on April 20. Officials expect to issue a “notice to proceed” imminently, with construction to start after a house is demolished that stands in the way, according to the report.

PennDOT posted a request for proposals on April 16. All firms that are pre-qualified to build walls in the region will be qualified to apply for the job, which will also include roadway reconstruction, according to Cheryl Moon-Sirianni, who runs the PennDOT district that includes Allegheny, Beaver and Lawrence counties.

Repairs are expected to be completed by mid-July.
