Pittsburgh lifts traffic restrictions on busy Grant Street

City of Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh has completed the restoration of brick paving on Grant Street and lifted traffic restrictions on July 3, 2019, that had been in place since May. Pittsburgh on July 3, 2019, lifted traffic restrictions on Grant Street after completing a brick pavement restoration project.

Pittsburgh on Wednesday lifted traffic restrictions on Grant Street, Downtown, following the completion of a brick pavement restoration project that began in May.

The city on May 6 limited traffic to one lane in each direction between Seventh Street and Liberty Avenue for replacement of brick pavers and repairs to a concrete base. The project, part of Pittsburgh’s $20 million street resurfacing budget for 2019, finished on schedule, according to the Mayor’s Office.

Workers will repave a small section of Grant at Liberty Avenue next week to smooth the transition between brick and asphalt.

The work is expected to happen at night and will have limited traffic impact.

Pittsburgh plans to repair other deteriorating blocks of Grant in future phases.

The city maintains Grant as a brick street because of its prominence in the heart of Downtown and its historical significance.
