Blitz Continues in Pittsburgh Neighborhoods

City officials say neighborhood snow removal “blitzes” will continue throughout the Pittsburgh today and through the weekend as needed. Crews this afternoon are focused on the Regent Square, Point Breeze, and Beechview neighborhoods. Crews will also be working in all neighborhoods hitting streets that are in the worst condition, working from a list compiled from 3-1-1 calls and the police and fire bureau.
The 3-1-1 non-emergency citizens' helpline will remain open through the weekend from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The Parking Authority will not be enforcing fees or citations on authority parking meters or surface lots until Tuesday.

Bureau of Building Inspectors are going through the city’s business districts advising business and building owners how to safely remove overhanging icicles.

An administration spokeswoman says refuse and recycling collections will resume their regular schedule Monday.
