Attend the Grand Opening of the New Montour Trail 6.3 Mile Connector to the Pittsburgh International Airport
At 11:00 AM on March 20, 2012, the first day of Spring, the Montour Trail Council and the Allegheny County Airport Authority will celebrate the Grand Opening of a long awaited connection between the Montour Trail and the Pittsburgh International Airport.
The festivities will take place on the concrete, unused exit area where the new asphalt trail ends and crosses into the airport’s Extended Parking Lot (Section 16D).
If people want to ride their bicycles to the event, they can use the well marked connector which begins at the 5 way intersection near Mile 8 of the Montour Trail, just upstream of the Enlow Tunnel. The Pittsburgh Major Taylor Bicycle Club will lead riders to the event from the Enlow Ballfield, leaving there around 10 AM or so, if you would like to join them for the 6 mile ride and arrive en masse.
For people driving to the event, attendees can park for free in the Extended Lot, Section 16D which is located right next to the site of the event. (Drive to the Extended Parking entrance, take a ticket, find section 16D. Your ticket will be taken care of before you leave.)
