PITTSBURGH, PA (October 19, 2020) The City of Pittsburgh Department of Mobility and Infrastructure has opened the Monitor to Forward trail, creating a connection for non-vehicular traffic between the residential neighborhoods in that area south of the Squirrel Hill tunnel to Forward Avenue and the Murray Avenue business district.
The trail, which cost an estimated $50,000, is constructed of compacted aggregate, with asphalt paving through an existing gravel parking lot. It is between the terminus of Monitor Street at Beechwood Boulevard and the parking lot of Solevo Wellness on Forward Avenue.
Work by DOMI, Folino Construction and Solevo included clearing of overgrowth along the trail alignment; minor grading to improve trail slope; and construction of a gravel trail between the asphalt path and the tie-in at the Solevo parking lot.
