Visiting the Site?

A few things to keep in mind if you or your group is visiting the site. This is an active construction site, with regularly changing conditions. Please wear sturdy shoes and dress appropriately for the weather.

 

Directions to the Site Trailer.

Site Entrance: Enter from Second Avenue, on the north end of the site, you will turn onto a gravel road that runs parallel to the train tracks with a fence running along it, this is the site boundary. The Almono construction trailer is located shortly after you turn off Second Avenue, see map below.

By Car: The easiest approach by vehicle is from the West/North. Drive East/South on Second Ave, you'll want to turn right onto a gravel road just BEFORE the road curves and passes underneath a railroad bridge at the intersection of Second Ave/Irvine St/Greenfield Ave/Saline St. Please refer to google maps for more detailed directions. You may park along the gravel road, or next to the Almono construction trailer inside the gate.


By Bus: The "Greenfield Ave at Second/Irvine" bus stop is the closest to the site entrance, and has three routes that stop - the 56 (Lincoln Place/McKeesport), 57 (Hazelwood), and 58 (Greenfield) - all of which run through Downtown. Please check with the Port Authority for the most up-to-date bus routes and schedules.


By Foot & Bicycle: The site is less than half a mile from two major trails: the Eliza Furnace (runs along the east side of the Monongahela) and the Three Rivers Heritage Trail / Great Allegheny Passage (runs along West side of the Monongahela, crossing over the Hot Metal Bridge). HOWEVER, the short gap between the trails and the site entrance on Second Avenue / Greenfield Avenue corridor is currently not conducive to pedestrians or bicyclists, so please use caution. You may find more information on pedestrian and bicycle routes, as well as safety information at BikePgh.
