Section of Sidewalk Collapses

The sidewalk along Wheeling Hill on National Road near the McColloch’s Leap Monument closed Tuesday for repairs after a section collapsed.

The sidewalk, stretching from the monument to McColloch Street near Generations Restaurant, will be closed for repairs until further notice, according to city officials.

The city received reports of a hole in the sidewalk over the weekend and found that a section of the sidewalk had collapsed, said Public Works Director Russell Jebbia.

The repairs will involve removal and replacement of the sidewalk, and the Public Works Department is looking for a funding source for the project, Jebbia said.
