​​​Recently a WYTC family made a generous donation of maintenance related items to the WYTC Over the Hill gang maintenance crew. The family donated many new items from an estate as well from individual family members. The list of items is quite diverse and will immediately aid with routine maintenance tasks and emergency repair efforts.  The WYTC expresses sincere appreciation for their generosity.

 

Donations are always welcome.  The WYTC can continue its great job of trail maintenance and improvement only with member support.  Although cash donations are preferred, if you have some specialized piece of equipment that you no longer use or need, please contact the WYTC prior to discarding it. Donation of services is also welcome.  If you have skills or abilities in welding, fabrication, mechanical maintenance, etc. and are willing to help with special problems let the WYTC know so that we can contact you to seek your help.

Riverlife is very pleased to announce that as of February 1, the City of Pittsburgh awarded the bid for construction of the Mon Wharf switchback, a bicycle and pedestrian ramp that will connect the Smithfield Street Bridge to the Mon Wharf Landing. Riverlife has served in a leadership role in planning and fundraising for the project.

Plans for spring construction mobilization are underway. The next step is to determine a date for the contractor’s notice to proceed and groundbreaking.

We look forward to announcing the groundbreaking date publicly in the near future and celebrating the start of this long-anticipated project!
