In order to discourage motorists from speeding and enhance safety for pedestrians, Pittsburgh’s Department of Mobility and Infrastructure is installing permanent asphalt speed humps on Grandview Avenue in Mount Washington.

According to a press release, speed and volume data found that 61 percent of motorists traveled over the speed limit of 25 mph. Temporary rubber speed humps were installed in the fall of 2019 and removed in January 2020. The data collected during the pilot period found that the number of motorists traveling over the speed limit was reduced to 32 percent.
