Title: UGRR Pittsburgh Spur, Map 1, Bridge Closure/Detour - Aug. 2018
Post by: jrobertson on August 28, 2018, 11:40:28 am
This year-long bridge closure is on the Fleming Park Bridge accessing the east end of Neville Island. This affects Map 1 on the Underground Railroad Pittsburgh Spur. The Section of SR 51 between Turns 'B' and 'D' is not advised due to no shoulders, steep curves, and very short sight lines. Please do not ride this section of SR 51 in lieu of the routing on the map. The Port Authority is running a shuttle across the construction project, but it is a standard school bus and not equipped to carry loaded bicycles. We advise this alternate route to the south:
