Some Reasons to visit Pittsburgh and stay at the Holiday Inn Express and Suites Pittsburgh Airport; Kaleidoscope: Visit to Pittsburgh not complete without journey on a 'fun'-icular by KEN LAHMERS | EDITOR Published: August 26, 2015 1:00AM The most spectacular place from which to see the Golden Triangle of Pittsburgh and the downtown landscape is Mount Washington -- originally called Coal Hill -- above the Fort Pitt and Liberty tunnels. And an easy and picturesque way to get to Mount Washington, which boasts a handful of notable restaurants and shops, is by riding a car on one of two remaining inclines. Having visited Pittsburgh four or five times for Pirates baseball games, I never explored the city or rode the inclines until my Memorial Day weekend trip there. During an Orrville Railroad Heritage Society excursion in 2008, I walked around Station Square and observed the Monongahela Incline. Ever since, I wanted to ride up and down the slope. Pittsburgh's hills once were dotted with several inclines made of wood, steel tracks, cables and cars. They also are called "gravity planes" or "funiculars." The cars are pulled up and lowered with a system of cables and pulleys powered by large engines in the upper stations. At one time, the city boasted 23 of them. Only two -- the Duquesne and Monongahela -- remain. I chose to ride the Duquesne on Sunday morning, when ridership was sparse. It's the closest one to the Golden Triangle -- right across the Ohio River from the Carnegie Science Center and Heinz Field. In the past, several of the inclines were used to transport coal and other materials up and down the hills. The "Mon" Incline is the world's steepest. Built in 1870, it is located above Station Square and near the Smithfield Street bridge. It is 635 feet long, rises 367.4 feet and has a grade of 35 degrees. THE DUQUESNE, built in 1877, is 793 feet long, 400 feet high and has a grade of 30 degrees, not as steep as the Mon. Duquesne has a greater ridership because of its location closer to the Golden Triangle. Each incline has two cars side-by-side so that when one is going up, the other can go down. No operators are needed onboard; they are situated in the upper stations. The cars are attached to opposite ends of a single cable and counterbalance each other. Thus the engine provides only enough power to overcome friction and the difference in the weight of the passengers. For a measly 50 cents, riders can venture down into the engine room and see the giant hoisting gears and power source. Duquesne Incline was the first in Pittsburgh to be designed and built by engineer Samuel Diescher. He was the country's foremost builder of the planes. Since 1964, Duquesne has been operated by the Society for the Preservation of the Duquesne Heights Incline. Both inclines are owned by the Port Authority of Allegheny County. Duquesne was shut down in 1962, but after acquisition and repair by the society, it reopened in 1964. It cost $47,000 to build and its cars can hold 18 people. The upper station features many old photos of the incline and Pittsburgh, plus information on inclines around the world and a gift shop. Mon was renovated in 1882 and 1982-83, and its cars can carry 23 passengers. Riding one or both of the inclines is an opportunity no visitor to Pittsburgh should miss. TUNNELS IN PITTSBURGH When I lived in St. Clairsville, Ohio, I traveled through the Wheeling Tunnel occasionally. Tunnels are kind of spooky. The lanes are narrow, and I often wondered what happens if there's a traffic accident inside. Pittsburgh has numerous tunnels. A few are for automobile traffic, some are for railroad traffic and some -- including under the downtown area -- are for pedestrians. Since I stayed near the Pittsburgh airport, I had to drive through the Fort Pitt Tunnel three times on my way into the city. That tunnel carries Interstate 376 traffic. The 3,614-foot long Fort Pitt was begun in 1957 and completed in 1960. The north portal has openings at two levels because the adjacent Fort Pitt bridge has two decks. The south portal openings are at the same level. Exiting the tunnel at the north portal provides a breathtaking view of the downtown landscape. The New York Times once proclaimed it as "the best way to enter an American city." The tunnel boasts 3,576 light bulbs and has 187,200 square feet of tiled surface. Nearly 107,000 vehicles a day pass through it. The Liberty Tunnel -- also called the Liberty Tubes -- is 5,889 feet long and unlike the Fort Pitt, once had sidewalks along the vehicle lanes, but they were removed in the 1970s. Construction of the $6 million tubes was started in 1919 and ended in 1924. Ventilation was a problem in the early years, with many motorists passing out from fumes, until four 200-foot vertical shafts were drilled in 1928. That year, the Liberty bridge over the Monongahela River was completed and linked to the tunnel. In 1941, it became the first tunnel in the world to provide AM radio reception throughout, and since August 1987 it has provided cellular phone reception. The Armstrong Tunnel connects Second Avenue at the South 10th Street bridge to Forbes Avenue and runs under Duquesne University. I passed the north portals on my way down Forbes Avenue. The tunnel was constructed in 1926-27. It is 1,320 feet long with a 45-degree bend in the middle, and has a sidewalk on its westside. Other tunnels around the city are the Panhandle Railroad, Stowe, Mount Lebanon Transit, Mount Washington Transit, Greentree and Wabash. THE CITY OF BRIDGES Another of the several names given to Pittsburgh is "The City of Bridges" because it has dozens of them. Several cross the Monongahela, Allegheny and Ohio rivers. The city's oldest in-service bridge is Smithfield Street, which opened in 1883 and connects downtown with Station Square. It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1976. Many of the bridges in the downtown area are colored Aztec Gold to match the city's official colors of black and gold. A few old bridges, such as the Hot Metal bridge over the Mon River, is now closed to vehicles but open to pedestrians and bicyclists. The Three Sisters bridges are side-by-side, similar self-anchored suspension bridges spanning the Allegheny River. They are named after Roberto Clemente (Sixth Street), Andy Warhol (Seventh Street) and Rachel Carson (Ninth Street). During my trip, I crossed the Fort Pitt (I-376), Fort Duquesne (I-279), Smithfield, Sixth Street and 31st Street bridges. THE CITY'S BUILDINGS During an extensive walk around downtown, I passed by many imposing buildings. My favorite is the Allegheny County Courthouse and old jail, built between 1884-88. Its architecture is characterized by the classic symmetry of the Renaissance, with Romanesque details such as Syrian arches, Byzantine Capitals, late French Gothic dormer windows and French Renaissance roofs. Among the most impressive features are a tower rising about 229 feet. The three tallest downtown buildings are U.S. Steel Tower (841 feet), BNY Mellon Center (725 feet) and One PPG Place (635 feet). Cleveland's Key Center is 947 feet high and the Terminal Tower is 771 feet. The Cathedral of Learning at the University of Pittsburgh is impressive at 535 feet. It's the second tallest university campus building in the world behind one at Moscow State University. Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall and Museum near UP is another noteworthy building. It was dedicated in 1910 and is the largest structure honoring all branches of the U.S. military.
