Brookline Boulevard Reconstruction

Except for occasional repaving of the street surface, the four-lane Brookline Boulevard in Pittsburgh had not had major improvements since 1966, when it was modified for cars rather than trolleys.

As part of an ongoing contract with the City of Pittsburgh, CDR Maguire provided project management and administration services for the $5.35 million reconstruction of this thoroughfare traveled daily by more than 4,000 vehicles.

The project included geometric improvements; new curbs and sidewalks; intersection improvements including sidewalk bumpouts, new curb ramps, and new traffic signals; mill and overlay of existing roadway pavement; new signing and pavement markings; new street lighting, parking meters, and drainage inlets; and new landscaping and streetscape.
