(PITTSBURGH) Sept. 24 The Market Square renovation moves into the final stretch beginning tomorrow, Sept. 25, when the remaining trees will be planted, weather permitting. The irrigation systems are scheduled to be completed on Sept. 27 or 28, after which shrubs and mulch will be added.
Once all of the planting is done, reconstruction of the sidewalk on Market Street will begin and light poles will be erected, followed by final paving. All work is expected to be completed by mid October.
Businesses on Market Street, like Mancini's, Prantls and Nettleton’s Shoes will still be open during construction.
The Market Square grand re-opening is scheduled for Oct. 19.
The Market Square renovation is a project of the City of Pittsburgh under Mayor Luke Ravenstahl. It is the culmination of several years of public process and has been made possible through the leadership, vision and financial contributions of the City of Pittsburgh, Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA), Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership (PDP), Heinz Endowments, Richard King Mellon Foundation, Colcom Foundation and the Hillman Corporation.
