Pittsburgh will close the outbound lanes of Grant Street for two months starting Monday, May 6, 2019, to replace bricks and make other repairs.

Pittsburgh on Monday will close a portion of Grant Street in Downtown for two months while crews repair the bumpy, brick roadway.

The Port Authority of Allegheny County announced Friday that it would detour 15 bus routes while work is ongoing.

Pittsburgh is closing Grant heading toward the Greyhound Station between Seventh and Liberty avenues until July 3, according to the Mayor’s Office. Two-way traffic will be maintained on Grant’s other lanes in that block.

The project is the first phase of a multiyear effort to repair the street running through the heart of Downtown from the parkway to Liberty Avenue.

The Port Authority will post signs at all bus stops in the impacted area to advise riders of the changes and direct them to the nearest stop.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using 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.
