Pittsburgh to begin sidewalk repairs along Mt. Washington’s Grandview Avenue

A portion of the sidewalk along Grandview Avenue is closed for repair on Mount Washington on Tuesday, June 25, 2019.

Pittsburgh will begin repairs in September to sidewalks and railings along Mt. Washington’s scenic Grandview Avenue.

Originally estimated at $1 million, the $800,000 project will begin on Sept. 3 and wrap up by late November, according to the Mayor’s Office.

“Grandview Avenue is a treasure to our city and our region, and we will continue to work with our partners to preserve this icon for generations to come,” Mayor Bill Peduto said in a statement.

The city closed several sections of cantilevered sidewalk along the street in June after determining that structural pillars supporting the walks were deteriorating.

City contractors will replace concrete slabs and sidewalks, perform concrete repairs and clean and paint railings along the street.

The sidewalks will be closed during construction and the Mayor’s Office warned that traffic restrictions could occur on P.J. McArdle Roadway leading to Grandview.

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.
