Yes, the freeroll and initial chute turn area are now being re-surfaced.
Even better news. The "back hills" are scheduled to be re-paved this year too.
See:http://cbspittsburgh.files.wordpress.co ... -19-14.pdf
A quick search on "frew" shows that they are repaving Schenley from Frew (chute entrance) to Panther hollow (stop sign), as mentioned above.
They are ALSO paving Frew from Schenley (chute entrace) to Tech (top of hill 2), constituting the whole chute to the finish line (the entire backhills). The weird thing is, they have a different paving program listed (Blkstn, Asph) as opposed to main roads only getting asphalt. I hope that doesn't mean they are cheaping out on it. There is also a hilarious "note" in the notes sections which reads "CMU pay half???" LOL good luck with that PGH DPW, they don't like to pay for stuff.
