Pennsylvania port authority obtains funding for Gateway Center station



The Port Authority of Allegheny County recently obtained agreements with the Heinz Endowments and Pittsburgh Foundation to help fund design and construction costs for the new Gateway Center Station.

Heinz Endowments and the foundation will contribute $1 million and $100,000, respectively, for the station, which will link the light-rail system with subway service and tunnels running beneath the Allegheny River.

The facility is one of four stations to be built as part of the port authority’s North Shore Connector project, which is designed to extend light-rail service to Pittsburgh’s North Shore. The North Side and Allegheny stations will be located on the North Shore, and a new convention center station will link the David L. Lawrence Convention Center and the Steel Plaza Station.
