New solar-powered LEDs to light the way along popular South Park walking trail


In a few weeks, strolling down a popular pedestrian trail in South Park will no longer just be a daytime affair.

Work has begun on a project to illuminate a roughly 2-mile portion of the trail running along Corrigan Drive between Library and Brownsville roads with 122 energy-efficient solar-powered lights.

Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald said the project addresses multiple goals.

“This project is the latest in a long list of sustainable initiatives in our parks and throughout the county,” he said. “Not only will it allow for more usage of the path, it will also make it safer for users.”
