Visiting the Site
Directions to the site.
If you have a site visit scheduled, there are a few things to keep in mind. This is an active construction site, with regularly changing conditions. Please wear sturdy shoes and dress appropriately for the weather. The Hazelwood Green project trailer is now located on the southern end of the site, near the intersection of Hazelwood and Second Avenues.
By Bus: The Hazelwood Avenue / Second Avenue bus stop are the closest to the site entrance, and have three routes that stop - the 56 (Lincoln Place/McKeesport) and 57 (Hazelwood), which run to Downtown; and and the 93 (Lawrenceville-Oakland-Hazelwood). Proceed West on Hazelwood Avenue (towards the river), just past the railroad tracks turn right onto the gravel road, the Hazelwood Green project trailer is the first one on the left. Please check with the Port Authority for the most up-to-date bus routes and schedules.
By Vehicle: If approaching by vehicle from Downtown/South Side/Oakland on Second Avenue, turn (continue straight) onto "old" Second Ave just BEFORE the road curves and passes underneath a railroad bridge at the intersection of Second Ave/Irvine St/Greenfield Ave/Saline St. Continue for about a mile, proceed past the Mill 19 building to a separate compound of construction trailers. Turn right through the automatic gate, you’ll see a construction trailer on your right - this is the Hazelwood Green project trailer. Park anywhere in the gravel lot. Please refer to google maps for more detailed directions.
By Foot & Bicycle: The site is less than a mile from two major trails: the Eliza Furnace (runs along the east side of the Monongahela) and the Three Rivers Heritage Trail / Great Allegheny Passage (runs along West side of the Monongahela, crossing over the Hot Metal Bridge). However, Second Avenue & Irvine Street are currently not conducive to pedestrians or bicyclists, so please use caution.
