Due to heavy winds and inclement weather conditions, the City of Pittsburg has closed a portion of West 5th Street, between Pine and Broadway Street, in downtown Pittsburg. The decision to close the street was made on Friday, after City officials received a call about an unsafe structure at 113 W. 5th Street. Building safety officials responded to the complaint and verified that the building had moved since the last inspection. The City is in discussion with the property owner to demolish the building.
A portion of the street, east of 5th Street Bar & Grill, will remain open to allow access to the restaurant’s north entrance. The north sidewalk along 5th Street will also remain open to pedestrians.
