This approximate $12-15 million resurfacing project also includes signal upgrades, ADA curb cut ramp installation, and pedestrian safety improvements on East Carson Street between Smithfield Street and 33rd Street in the City of Pittsburgh. Work is expected to begin in 2019 and conclude in 2020.
Construction begins Monday, March. 18 on streetscape improvements, which will remove section of sidewalk closest to curb to lay conduit for new lighting. Starting at S. 10th and S. 17th Streets and working eastward, work will take approximately 3 weeks per block. Passage will be available for pedestrians.
The City Department of Mobility and Infrastructure (DOMI) has contracted limited streetscaping work to be done from S. 10th to S. 25th Streets along East Carson Street in conjunction with scheduled pedestrian safety improvements to be performed by PennDOT.
