The Steel Valley Trail Council’s April 29 bike ride aims to capitalize on the public’s rapt attention for raptors. The Raptor Row Ride along the Great Allegheny Passage Trail will have stops not just at the Hays bald eagles’ nest, which people around the world watch via “eagle cam,” but also at several lesser-known nesting sites where birds of prey successfully raised offspring last year. Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Apr 22, 2017

The GAP trail sits on the Monongahela River’s left bank (the left bank from the point of view of a boat floating downstream). The GAP trail is a great success. On the right bank, however, between Hazelwood and Braddock, there is no such continuous trail. It is difficult to travel along the river there by bike or foot and difficult to get over the river to the GAP trail on the other side. Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Jan 29, 2017

A time lapse of the bridge being lifted into place over Norfolk Southern and Union Railroad tracks in Whitaker, Pennsylvania, a bit upstream of Rankin Bridge. This flyover is a critical link in the Steel Valley Trail along the Monongahela River, which forms part of the Great Allegheny Passage bike/pedestrian trail from Pittsburgh toward Washington DC.
