PITTSBURGH, PA (May 7, 2021) The City of Pittsburgh’s Department of Mobility and Infrastructure (DOMI) advises that we will not be implementing detours at this time on East Ohio Street and Ridge Avenue as previously indicated. This decision was made to minimize the impact to nearby residents and businesses coinciding with the adjacent West Ohio Street project which is still impacting nearby roadways. We will provide proper advance notification as to when the detours will be implemented later in the construction project.
There will be construction activities starting on Monday, May 10, 2021 as follows:
· There will be traffic restrictions along Allegheny Commons at South Commons, Sandusky Street, East Commons and North Commons to allow for the contractor to remove existing islands at each intersection.
· Work will begin along the inside sidewalks at each intersection around Allegheny Commons that will include ADA ramp construction and traffic signal work. This will result in signals being deenergized and the intersections being in a STOP condition for all traffic movements. There will be temporary ADA ramps constructed outside the work limits at each intersection as the work progresses.
Although there will be restrictions, traffic will be maintained while work is completed. Please be aware of flaggers and adhere to changing traffic pattern for motorists, bicycles, and pedestrians.
Hours of construction will generally occur during the week, Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. One lane of traffic along North, South, East, and West Commons will be maintained throughout the construction project. Detours will be implemented over the course of the project for East Ohio Street, North and South Federal Street, Ridge Avenue, Sandusky Street and Stockton Avenue. Advance notice will be given prior to detours being put in place.
The purpose of the project is the conversion of Allegheny Commons (North, South, East and West Commons Streets) from one way to bidirectional traffic with bicycle lanes.
