The Three Rivers Heritage Trail is an expansive 33‑mile urban riverfront trail system along both sides of all three rivers in Pittsburgh and Allegheny County. The trail connects visitors to opportunities for recreation and commuting for both residents and visitors to the region, and allows access to dense urban areas, popular shopping and entertainment districts, and green space.
The City of Pittsburgh will be installing a fence along the trail in the South Side between 15th & 10th St. from 2/13- 2/21. The trail will be open during this time, but there will be construction vehicles and potential brief closures. Please use caution.
The piers around the 9th, 7th, and 6th Street Bridges on the North Shore will be temporarily closed due to cleaning. Construction on the 7th St. Bridge will begin September 25th and last for a few weeks, and the Trail will be detoured around the closure.
