DOMI to Proactively Close Sidewalk on Meadow Street Bridge
PITTSBURGH — City of Pittsburgh Department of Mobility and Infrastructure (DOMI) officials are alerting the public to an upcoming temporary, partial closure on the Meadow Street Bridge. The bridge, located in the East Liberty and Larimer neighborhoods, spans Negley Run Boulevard.
Pursuant from the recommendations of a routine bridge inspection earlier this month, DOMI is closing the northeast sidewalk to accommodate necessary repairs. The bridge’s roadway and the opposite sidewalk will remain open.
The northeast sidewalk will remain closed while the city identifies and engages a contractor to complete the needed remediation.
“There is not an immediate structural concern for the bridge, but we're operating out of an abundance of caution,” stated Acting Director of the Department of Mobility and Infrastructure Kimberly Lucas.
While DOMI works to find and mobilize a contractor, the city asks that those pedestrians travelling on the northeast side of Meadow Street to safely cross at either the Saint Marie Street or Lenora Street intersections.
The closure is expected to begin Friday, March 18.
