Demolition of upper plaza makes way for public art restoration

One of Pittsburgh’s first riverfront parks of the modern age continues its makeover for the 21st century. 

Demolition work has concluded on the upper plaza of Allegheny Landing (originally opened to the public in 1984) in preparation for installation of the replacement mosaics that are part of artist Ned Smyth’s Mythic Source sculpture. Restoration on the artwork will continue through the summer with demolition of the lower plaza beginning August 10.

Trail advisory begining August 10, 2015: Trail users are urged to exercise caution when using the lower portion of the Three Rivers Heritage Trail at Allegheny Landing between the 6th and 7th Street Bridges on the North Shore. Beginning Monday, August 10, the trail narrows due to ongoing construction and construction vehicles may be present.

This phase of Allegheny Landing’s restoration is a partnership between the City of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Museum of Art, Friends of Allegheny Landing, and Riverlife.
