Pittsburgh Regional Transit, formerly known as the Port Authority, said the incline will be out of service from Aug. 1 through mid-November during a rehabilitation project to update the mechanical, control and electrical systems.
There will also be upgrades to the incline’s upper and lower stations, where passengers board and exit at West Carson Street and Grandview Avenue, and the bridge structure will be painted.
During the closure, PRT said shuttle buses will run between Mount Washington and Station Square every 30 minutes. Trips will also be added to the 40 bus route.
The Monongahela Incline is a community asset that provides a quick and reliable connection from Mt. Washington to Station Square and downtown Pittsburgh.
