Pittsburgh’s North Side Could Become More Bike Friendly
Proposal would make streets more accommodating to bicycles.
More changes could be coming to the North Side to make it easier and safer for bikers and walkers to get around.
The Department of Mobility & Infrastructure and MoveForwardPGH unveiled plans for the next phase of the project, which will be focused on the following streets:
- Marshall Avenue between California Avenue and Brighton Road
- Westhall Street, Preble Avenue, Eckert Street, McClure Avenue, and Woods Run Avenue to create safer bike travel to Riverview Park
- Pennsylvania Avenue between Brighton Road and Manhattan Avenue
- Riverview Drive between Mairdale and the Riverview avenues within Riverview Park
- Merchant Street, Scotland Avenue, Martindale Street between Reedsdale Street and Ridge Avenue
During the presentation shared on April 5, the city shared its proposal to increase lane markings, neighborhood signage, speed humps and other traffic calming measures. The city also proposed moving a pedestrian crosswalk at Woods and Central avenue because of the curve in the road.
When both phases of the project are complete, a total of 8 miles of bike infrastructure will be improved or added to the North Side. The project is still in the planning phase and MoveForwardPGH is asking for resident feedback.
