Pittsburgh is preparing to start work on a troublesome intersection.
The city is looking to expropriate 11 properties through eminent domain from five owners for a $2.2 million reconstruction of a troublesome intersection along Banksville Road at Wenzell Avenue and Carnahan Street, according to a report from Triblive.
The city would pay the five owners a total of $188,700 in addition to construction costs, for taking the property, according to council legislation.
Work includes widening of Wenzell, replacement and widening of a bridge over Carnahan, stream bank stabilization, signal upgrades, repairs to stairs paralleling Wenzell and other pedestrian improvements.
Construction is expected to start this fall and take about a year.
