Port Authority of Allegheny County to start Mon Incline repairs

April 8, 2021
The routine cable replacement will take approximately four days to complete.

The Port Authority of Allegheny County’s Monongahela Incline will be closed April 13-16 for routine cable replacement.

Due to the nature of the work, the dates are subject to change pending weather conditions.

Shuttle buses will operate between the upper and lower stations. The frequency of the shuttles will be dependent on employee availability.

From the start of service until 8:00 p.m., riders at the lower station will board buses at the shelter behind Station Square Station. From 8:00 p.m. until the end of regular incline service, riders at the lower station will board buses at the bus stop at East Carson Street opposite Station Square Station.

Riders at the upper station will board shuttle buses on Grandview Avenue opposite Shiloh Street from the beginning of service through the end of service for the duration of closure.

Signs will be posted at the upper and lower stations directing customers to the appropriate shuttle stops.

In addition to shuttle buses, the 40-Mt. Washington bus route also will be available to riders throughout the duration of the closure. The 40-Mt. Washington serves the nearby Smithfield Street Bridge at Station Square bus stop.

Additionally, to accommodate the shuttle routing, the Wabash Tunnel will remain open in the outbound direction only for the duration of the incline closure.
