Fifth and Bellefield Ave Safety Improvements

Developer: Department of Mobility and Infrastructure (DOMI) in collaboration with the University of Pittsburgh

Project summary: DOMI and Pitt began implementing safety improvements at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and Bellefield Avenue to address concerns expressed by community members.

Due to sidewalk construction, the bus stop at the southwest corner of Fifth/Bellefield adjacent to the bus lane near the Cathedral of Learning has been temporarily closed. Eastbound transit riders should board at the Fifth Ave and Tennyson St stop.

The project is anticipated to take 4-5 weeks with a completion date of November 1, 2019.

Work will be done in the evening, beginning at 7:00 p.m. weeknights (weather permitting). Weekends may be added if weather interrupts the weekday schedule.

Pitt is funding for safety enhancement project.
