Point State Park Connector

 

The Point State Park Connector is a traffic-free, non-motorized ramp that will connect Point State Park to the western side of the Mon Wharf Landing.  Currently, the only access in this area is via a 4 foot wide path adjacent to Interstate 376, separated from traffic by a jersey barrier and from the Monongahela River by a chain link fence. The current link requires passage through a service parking lot of Point State Park.

Development

The final planned phase of the renovation of Point State Park includes construction of the Connector along the Mon River edge of the park. Preliminary design of the Connector by DCNR is complete and environmental clearance has been obtained. The Connector alignment follows under an existing PennDOT right-of-way, previously cleared environmentally for the construction of flyover ramps to the I-376 Interstate and the Fort Pitt Tunnels.
