PITTSBURGH, PA (May 1, 2019) Starting Monday, May 6, the Department of Mobility and Infrastructure will be reconstructing a portion of Grant Street due to the deteriorated condition of the bricks.
All bricks within the project limits will be replaced, along with replacement of damaged portions of the concrete subbase. This is the first year of a multi-year investment to repair Grant Street, which is maintained as a brick street due to its prominence and importance in the Central Business District. This is one component of the City’s $20 million street resurfacing budget for 2019, which includes asphalt, concrete, brick and blockstone streets. The asphalt resurfacing program also kicked off in April, and will be going strong through the summer and early fall.
When the contractor gets underway to start the brick replacement, the outbound lanes of Grant Street between Seventh and Liberty avenues will be closed for two months, beginning May 6 at 9 a.m., and will reopen on July 3 at 9 p.m.
Two-way traffic will be maintained on the inbound lanes of Grant Street. Posted detours will be provided and buses will be rerouted. The work is weather dependent.
