$671,200 in State Funding Going Towards Remediation of McKeesport & Duquesne Industrial Sites

With this grant, RIDC can begin environmental remediation work on the roundhouse—the old U.S. Steel National Works guardhouse in McKeesport—and the Open Hearth building at the old U.S. Steel Duquesne Works, bringing us a crucial step closer to getting these old properties in shape for redevelopment and tenancy.

Rep. Austin Davis, 35th District, Allegheny County, announced this fantastic news in a press release yesterday. The grant comes from the state Industrial Sites Reuse Program.
