Get ready for a headache in downtown Pittsburgh...........??

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Beginning Monday May 6, the Pittsburgh Department of Mobility and Infrastructure will be reconstructing a portion of Grant Street due to the deteriorated condition of the bricks.

All the bricks within the project limits will be replaced, along with parts of the concrete subbase. When the brick replacement gets underway, the outbound lanes of Grant Street between Seventh and Liberty avenues will be closed for two months beginning May 6 at 9:00 a.m. and will reopen on July 3 at 9:00 p.m. Two-way traffic will be maintained on the inbound lanes of Grant Street. Posted detours will be provided and buses will be rerouted.

I was hoping they would just rip the stupid bricks out and put down regular pavement so we can save the agony of this stupid idea to keep them there in a main road. Lately any brick streets I go around the long way if possible even if it adds another min or two to the trip either going to get the customer or with pax in the car.
