Major progress this week for the Mon Wharf Switchback project, a collaboration between Riverlife and the City of Pittsburgh! When complete, the Switchback will create a vital missing link in the downtown riverfront trail system and Great Allegheny Passage.

Steel supports for the switchback ramp were put into place at the project site along the Monongahela River just upstream of the Smithfield Street Bridge. We’ve known for a long time that this is a big project, and the supports give a visual confirmation of the size and height of the ramp when completed.

Trail users will enter the ramp from the upriver sidewalk of the bridge, walk or pedal east down the ramp before doubling back west to pass underneath the bridge and land at the Mon Wharf.
