Picklesburgh will bring parking restrictions and street closures

Bob Bauder
Picklesburgh, named the No. 1 specialty food festival in America by the latest USA Today reader’s poll, will be held July 26 through 28 along the Roberto Clemente Bridge to the riverside lanes of Fort Duquesne Boulevard between Stanwix and 7th Streets. The event includes lots of pickle-inspired foods.

Pittsburgh visitors should expect street, bridge and parking restrictions in Downtown and the North Side during the four-day Picklesburgh specialty food festival beginning on Thursday.

The Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership announced the following restrictions will go into effect at 9 a.m. Thursday and continue until Monday afternoon:

  • The Roberto Clemente Bridge and the riverside lanes of Fort Duquesne Boulevard, Downtown, between Stanwix and Seventh streets will be closed along with Federal Street in the North Side from the Roberto Clemente Bridge to General Robinson Street.
  • Isabella Street in the North Side between Sandusky and Federal streets will be restricted to local traffic. Parking will be prohibited on that portion of Isabella.
  • No parking on Fort Duquesne Boulevard from Stanwix to Seventh and on Stanwix from Penn Avenue to Ft. Duquesne Boulevard.

The restrictions will be lifted before Monday’s evening rush hour.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
