Southside Trail – Brownfield Remediation

Terminus of SST-W at Pittsburgh Yards to Boulevard SE (Possibly extending to Glenwood) // Subarea 2

ABI was awarded a $500,000 Brownfield Cleanup Grant from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Grant funds will be used to clean up portions of the interim Southside Trail. Soil remediation will focus on 26 areas as identified in the Analysis of Brownfield Cleanup Alternatives (ABCA) previously prepared by United Consulting.

Project Status

An Invitation to Bid (ITB) was posted this month to hire a firm to conduct brownfield remediation work. Once clean-up activities begin, they are anticipated to take 4-6 months. The trail will remain open and only be closed in spots where work is taking place.

An ITB for construction of the Southside Trail – Segments 4 and 5 will commence once the following is complete: permitting and advanced construction work, which includes brownfield remediation and two fiber relocation projects.
