Mon Wharf Switchback Ramp Project

APR 19 2017

Site Rendering

The Mon Wharf Switchback Ramp will connect cyclists using the Smithfield Street Bridge, Eliza Furnace Trail and Great Allegheny Passage safely and smoothly down to the Mon Wharf Landing, a linear park along the Monongahela River. 

Site Prep

Check out Riverlife awesome site info at After the Mon Wharf Landing opened to the public in 2009, creating new riverfront public open space on what was formerly rows of parking spaces, Riverlife began planning and fundraising for a connection on the eastern end of the Landing up to the Smithfield Street Bridge. When this connection is in place, the Mon Wharf switchback ramp will create a riverfront route for non-motorized trail users to enter into Point State Park.

The ramp will be ADA accessible and fully lit at night.
