FTA signs off on North Shore Connector grant for Pittsburgh port authority


In fall, the Port Authority of Allegheny County finally will begin construction on the North Shore Connector project. The Federal Transit Administration recently signed a Full Funding Grant Agreement that will cover a large portion of the project’s $435 million construction cost.

The North Shore Connector will extend the port authority’s 25-mile light-rail line 1.2 miles under the Allegheny River to Pittsburgh’s North Shore. The project is scheduled to be complete in 2011.
