Smallman Street Improvements

The Department of Mobility and Infrastructure intends to resurface Smallman Street in the Strip District from 16th to 21st Street in conjunction with a project by the Urban Redevelopment Authority to facilitate the restoration and reuse of the historic Produce Terminal building. More than just resurfacing, the project will include substantial improvements to the street including a new street distribution, new pavement patterns, new lighting fixtures, new street furnishings and stairs and ramps from street level to the Produce Terminal Building’s dock level to allow for easy and inviting transition and travel from the raised dock level to the street. If you have any questions regading this project please contact: domi.smallman@pittsburghpa.gov

The resurfacing / streetscaping components will consist of the following: 

  • Mill and overlay of the existing asphalt to provide a blank canvas to redistribute the right of way.
  • Maintenance of the existing drainage and curb lines to prevent the need for complete reconstruction.
  • Creation of bump outs, medians, and plazas along the southern side of the street using textured (stamped) and tinted (painted) asphalt.
  • Establishment of curbless concrete sidewalk along the northern side of the street to provide more space for pedestrians.

Timeline:

  • Preliminary Engineering: September 2018 - January 2019
  • Final Design: Feburary - March 2019
  • Advertise: June - July 2019

South Negley Avenue Bridge

The purpose of this South Negley Bridge Improvements is to maintain safe and efficient vehicular and pedestrian access along the South Negley Avenue corridor over the Port Authority of Allegheny County’s East Busway and Norfolk Southern Railroad facilities.

The need for this project is based on documented structural deficiencies including severe levels of deterioration to primary structural members supporting both sidewalks and several, heavily eroded stones and large, full height cracks in the stone masonry abutments.

Proposed bridge improvements include (but are not limited to):

  • Remove and replace the existing concrete bridge deck and sidewalks.
  • Raise the superstructure approximately 1’-8” to provide 22’ min. vertical clearance over Norfolk Southern Railroad.
  • Replace all heavily deteriorated sidewalk support beams.
  • Repair the truss and floor-beam members with section loss or other damage.
  • Clean and repair the deteriorated stone masonry in the abutments and wing-walls.
  • Reconstruct the approach roadway, existing stairs, and pedestrian ramp.
  • Repaint the bridge
  • Install new lighting and fencing

Bigelow Boulevard Reconstruction

Bigelow Boulevard is the civic center of the Pitt campus and host to students, business visitors, employees, and tourists. The streetscape project proposes a comprehensive set of improvements that addresses circulation and safety, while incorporating a streetscape design sensitive to the area's history. The project upgrades an important bike connection, relocates and enhances the pedestrian crossing, calms traffic, and uses best practices in street design to create a better sense of place in Oakland.
