Today, Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl accepted a $1.35 million grant from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service that is designated for the construction of a dock at the planned south shore riverfront park. The grant was made through the Boating Infrastructure Grant program. The project is located between 25Th street and 29Th street in the south side with construction expected to start this summer. The $10.5 million project has received funding from various groups but still needs to raise $2.5 million dollars for the project to reach completion.
