We will be rehabilitating 18 high platform light rail stations over the next 2 years. 

Project Plan

In 2021 the board approved a total of $10.8 million to complete the project, which will include repairing the concrete platforms, repairing, and replacing metal railings, replacing tactile pads, refurbishing overhead canopies, and painting various areas of the station. 

Station Construction

Phase One began in February 2022, and included Fallowfield, Potomac, and Mt. Lebanon Stations.

Phase Two began in August 2022, and included Willow/Overbrook Junction, and Washington Junction, before moving to South Bank, Denise and South Hills Village stations in February 2023.

Although the project was initially broken into four phases, supply chain issues and scheduling have caused us to revisit this phased approach to give our contractor more flexibility to move between the stations based on the materials they have available without delaying the project. For example, work at Castle Shannon Station, which was initially to be finished in the second phase, is now scheduled to begin April 10.

Work at Lytle and McNeilly stations will start in early May, followed by Killarney, Memorial Hall, First Avenue, Library, Boggs and Bon Air in the subsequent months.

The contractor will be working weekdays from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Weekends may be used as make-up days and when single track is required to limit disruption to riders. If they do work weekends, it would also be from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Possible delays and detours will also be communicated to the public through twitter @PghTransitCare.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please call PRT Customer Service at 412-442-2000. Representatives are available weekdays from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., and weekends and holidays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
