The state Department of Transportation has reopened a section of Route 837 that was closed last month due to a rock slide.

Crews from Allison Park Contractors removed debris and installed barriers, said Steve Cowan, district spokesman for PennDOT.

The road was closed on March 28 between the railroad crossing at Watco’s Dravosburg terminal (Boswell Oil) and the McKeesport-Duquesne Bridge. It reopened Friday.
