The entire area encompassing Tunnel Street and the western section of Wylie Avenue has been significantly changed over the years to allow for modern construction of, among other projects, the US Steel Corp. Building. Tunnel Street was a short street connecting 5th Avenue and Webster Avenue; and running parallel and between 6th Avenue and Chatham Street. Wylie Avenue crossed Tunnel Street and terminated at Court Place. Tunnel Street no longer exists and the section of Wylie Avenue between Court Place and Crawford  Street was removed to allow for construction of the Civic Arena and the associated parking facilities. The accompanying photos show what the modern and upscale section of downtown Pittsburgh looked like in the early 1900's.
