PITTSBURGH, PA (May 20, 2020) The City of Pittsburgh Department of Mobility and Infrastructure is pleased to announce the full reopening of Swinburne Street in South Oakland following seven months of construction. The $710,000 project fixed an ongoing slope instability issue that required the closure of Swinburne Street between Greenfield Avenue and Edgehill Street. The work consisted of flattening the slope below the road, installing soil nails, and installing a modular concrete block wall.
The City partially reopened Swinburne Street in March in advance of repaving of the street, which was just completed. Before and after photos of the street resurfacing are below.
This represents a significant investment in landslide remediation. Several other large scale slide investments are under construction including List Street, Semicir Street, William Street, and Forward Avenue. This work effort is designed to protect and restore public rights of way.

Tonight, the City-County Building is illuminated to recognize Poison Prevention Week and the 50th Anniversary of "Mr. Yuk" in partnership with Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC.
For questions about the lighting at the City-County Building, please reach out to the Office of the Mayor.
