Market Square now features outdoor dining throughout the majority of the square, with traffic routed away from the park. Reservations can be made for seats along the expanded sidewalk, but there is public seating in the center as well.
In addition, the 900 Block of Penn Avenue — in the heart of the Cultural District — now has extended sidewalk space for pedestrians, new outdoor eating areas and slow through-traffic. Strawberry Way, an alley that connects Liberty Avenue and Grand Street that often features art murals, is again open for outdoor dining near Smithfield Street. Seating is expected to expand near Grant Street, as well.
Lastly, 6th Street between Liberty Avenue and Fort Duquesne Boulevard is set to have outdoor dining options in the coming weeks. These spaces are expected to remain open through October.
This project to increase outdoor dining is largely supported by PNC Bank and the Richard King Mellon Foundation. The street modifications are made possible as a result of collaborations with the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership, the Mayor’s Office and the Department of Mobility and Infrastructure and Pittsburgh Public Safety. Michael Baker International, Traffic Planning and Design, Port Authority and the Parking Authority have also been involved.
