MON WHARF SWITCHBACK BRIDGE

The Mon Wharf Switchback Ramp is a Riverlife project in partnership with the City of Pittsburgh to fill a vital missing link in downtown Pittsburgh’s riverfront park and trail system.


This project serves as the ‘missing link’ in the Great Allegheny Passage Bike Trail. The 12-foot wide Switchback Pedestrian/Bicycle Trail now provides smooth access to Riverfront Park along the Monongahela River, built a few years ago by Clearwater, and will tie in the Southside with Point State Park for a captivating user experience.

Clearwater installed micro-piles that doubled as anchors to hold the foundations firmly in place in the event of high Monongahela River flow or ice jams.

The City of Pittsburgh & Riverlife have a vested interest in this regional project that connects trails all the way to Washington DC.
