PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- A dream is closer to becoming a reality.
A proposed zip line that would sail from Mount Washington to the North Shore has been awarded a grant. It would cross the Ohio River at 50 miles-per-hour with a 400-foot drop.
The concept sounds simple enough - a little swing across the river.
When KDKA’s Kristine Sorensen and photojournalist Lori Sperling took you on the Laurel Highlands zip line tour last summer, the longest ride was 1,600-feet in and above the tree tops.
