These steps were upgraded in 2012 through a combination of the state’s Elm Street funding and a grant from Duquesne Light’s “Power of Light” program to repair, pressure wash and stain the concrete steps and install LED light fixtures below each stair tread. The fixtures not only serve the practical need of increasing lighting levels at the footfall areas of the steps, but they also serve as beacons to passersby, highlighting and celebrating this neighborhood icon. Climb down the 140 steps to 18th St. below.
