PITTSBURGH (KDKA)– Another popular place on Light Up Night is Mount Washington, but will some of the sidewalks and overlooks be ready for holiday visitors?
Work along the scenic overlook in Mount Washington started back in August after complaints about the condition of sidewalks and railings surfaced earlier in the summer.READ MORE: Police Investigating Strip District Shooting, Man Left In Critical Condition
Almost three months later, KDKA checked out the progress overnight.
Temporary fencing is still up, and some sidewalks remain blocked.
But, the project just got a financial boost. Yesterday, KDKA learned Pennsylvania will chip in $700,000 to help pay for the repairs.READ MORE: Anthony Gonzalez, House Republican Who Voted To Impeach Pres. Trump Won't Run Again
The money is part of a more than $2 million transportation funding package for the City of Pittsburgh.
Unfortunately, it appears any hope of an early completion of this project in time for Light Up Night is a little more than a holiday wish.
Last week, Pittsburgh Public Works said the project is not expected to be complete until Thanksgiving.
