The STRIP DISTRICT segment will be CLOSED from 11th to 21st street for construction starting Monday, August 1. Two construction projects will be under way -- Buncher will be performing a trail clean-up project from 11th to 16th street, and NRP will be working on sanitation pipes from 18th to 21st street. Buncher’s project is scheduled to be completed in November, at which time the Trail will reopen from 11th to 15th street. The Trail from 15th to 21st street will remain closed until early summer 2017 for this portion of the NRP project.
The ELIZA FURNACE segment will be closed July 28th and 29th. The Trail is getting new asphalt and limestone jogging track on both sides from the Birmingham Bridge to the Swinbure Street Parking lot. The Trail will be closed at this time and all users who will be crossing at the Hot Metal Bridge are asked to use the Smithfield Street Bridge until the work is finished. This is part of a restoration give back by Duquesne Light and their contractors for installing underground utility work.
SOUTH SIDE After heavy rain, an area of the Trail just past the eagle nest on the lower portion of the trail is flooding. Friends of the Riverfront, the City, and adjacent property owners are working on a permanent draining solution to fix this problem. Implementation will take place this summer. Please use caution near this area during and following rain.
NORTH SHORE Construction will begin on the North Shore segment of the Three Rivers Heritage Trail between the 6th and 7th Street Bridge near Allegheny Landing on Tuesday, June 28th. Fencing will be put up and detour signs will be posted. Please check back for updates!
ALCOSAN will be conducting maintenance work in four areas adjacent to the Three Rivers Heritage Trail. One area is on the Allegheny River near 8th Street, and three areas between 10th Street and the Steelers' practice field on the Monongahela. Please use caution while in these areas and obey signage and flaggers.
