Route 19 Utility Covers Cause Tire Damage
Drivers have reported tire damage after driving over utility covers near the intersection of Park Boulevard and West Liberty Avenue.
Dormont police are warning drivers to be careful in the southbound lanes of West Liberty Avenue, near the Park Boulevard intersection.
Officer James Burke said the department has received complaints that a set of small utility covers, which normally are level with the road, have been coming loose and creating a potentially dangerous hazard.
The caps are only a few inches wide, but can cause damage if they are out of line when a car drives over them.
Burke said the utility covers are owned by Equitable Gas, and that the company has been contacted to correct the issue.
“The caps pop up sometimes, and we’ve had some people report tire damage,” said Dormont Officer James Burke. “We just want to let people know to be careful going southbound near that intersection.”
