Partial Closure of Fifth and Forbes Avenues

PITTSBURGH, PA (November 23, 2021) The City of Pittsburgh’s Department of Mobility and Infrastructure (DOMI) is announcing the temporary paving of Fifth Avenue and Forbes Avenue in the Uptown neighborhood.

Milling and repaving of Fifth Avenue and Forbes Avenue between Sixth Street and Moultrie Street will start on Tuesday, November 30, 2021 for approximately one week and construction will take place between 5:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. During this time, traffic may be reduced to a single lane. Performing this work is contractor A. Folino Construction, Inc.

Currently, several utility company construction projects have been actively replacing underground utilities beneath Fifth Avenue and Forbes Avenue. The temporary paving is to stabilize the road surface for travel during the winter months before utility work begins again in the spring of 2022.

Thank you for your cooperation during this time. We hope there will be only minor inconveniences. If you have any questions or require further information regarding this project, you may contact the City’s Response Center by calling 311 or 412-255-2621.
