James McCarville will step down as executive director of the Port of Pittsburgh Commission, an agency that promotes commercial use and development of the region’s rivers, at the end of June.

Mr. McCarville, 68, of Ross, has headed the commission for 20 years. In a letter to commissioners, he said “after a long battle we have made real headway in restarting funding for our locks and dams,” restoring $70 million for work on the lower Monongahela. He also mentioned progress in development of a wireless network along the rivers.

“The [commission] will have to remain vigilant to ensure that sufficient funding is available for the operations, maintenance and modernization of all of our locks and dams. This will be no easy task,” he said.

A search committee and search company are in place to seek Mr. McCarville’s replacement.
