PITTSBURGH, PA (December 1, 2020) The City of Pittsburgh Department of Public Works will continue to work through this evening and overnight to treat streets during the ongoing snowfall.
Yesterday DPW boosted its overnight shift to begin treating streets with blue-tinted magnesium chloride salt in advance of this morning's rush hour. Today it is extending its daylight shift by four hours to work until 6 p.m., and then bringing in overnight workers early for a 12-hour shift that also begins at 6 p.m.
Temperatures are expected to begin rising late Wednesday morning, which should help road conditions improve further.
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.
