The Southside Trail is divided into six segments for construction purposes. Segment 1 is paved and open to the public. It runs 0.8 miles from the southern terminus of the Westside Trail at University Avenue to the Annie E. Casey Foundation site at Pittsburgh Yards, just west of the I-75/85 overpass.
Segments 4 and 5, between Boulevard and Glenwood Avenue, will be closing for construction in May 2023. Construction is expected to last through spring 2025. A groundbreaking ceremony took place on March 13.
The remaining Southside Trail – Segments 2 and 3 continue to remain open as an open unpaved trail between Pittsburgh Yards and I-20. They are anticipated to go into construction by the end of 2023.
