Pittsburgh Light Rail Facility to get Upgrades

The Port Authority of Allegheny County has approved a plan to renovate its light rail maintenance facility in Pittsburgh.

The $11.2 million project will cover work that will take place over a 17-month period to renovate the 35-year-old facility.

The work will focus on maintenance pits, plumbing, and electricity, and be conducted over six phases.

It will include restoring concrete approaches and pits; replacing rails and supports; placing protective coating on the floor; modifying compressed air piping, drainage, and hot-water systems; and improving the electrical system and lighting.
