Duquesne Light Project in Allegheny Commons Park

Duquesne Light is planning on building a "crossover station" above ground in the East Park of Allegheny Commons to upgrade the high power line system that runs under the park.
The structure will be large, 28 x 9 x 9 and will be on the lawn on Cedar Avenue where the Fresh Fridays farmers market is held.
A meeting hosted by Councilwomen Tonya Payne and Darlene Harris and the Allegheny Commons Initiative will be held Monday evening at 6:30 in the New Hazlett Theater.
Allegheny Commons is Pittsburgh's oldest park. It was designed in 1867 and Allegheny Commons Initiative Project Director Alida Baker says it serves as the front yard for 7,000 people.
Her group has been working to restore the park.
