As of today, a construction zone is in place near the site of the new $15.9 million Frick Environmental Center at Frick Park, as well as several trail detours and entrance closures, the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy announced.

“After many years of enthusiastic community input, dedicated public and private support, and careful design and planning, the work to build the new Center is now underway,” said Meg Cheever, conservancy president and CEO, in a prepared statement.

Conservancy officials have said it will take about two years to build the center just off Beechwood Boulevard in Squirrel Hill on the site of a center that was destroyed in a 2002 fire.

Construction updates will be posted on the conservancy's website at
