Learn about the “cluster” of projects at these upcoming Public Meetings
As part of the MoveForwardPGH program, the City’s Department of Mobility and Infrastructure (DOMI) is planning a “cluster” of bicycling improvements within Shadyside and Squirrel Hill to create less stressful biking and walking connectivity within and through the neighborhoods.
The neighborhoods of Shadyside, Oakland, Squirrel Hill and Bloomfield have some of the highest rates of bicycling in the City of Pittsburgh. While bike infrastructure exists in places, it is disconnected or ends abruptly. Improvements along this cluster of streets, identified in the City’s Bike(+) Plan, will help address these gaps in the network.
DOMI hopes to achieve safer, more comfortable streets for all users through these proposed improvements. Improvements, depending on context and community input, could include: new road markings and crosswalks, Neighborways, bike lanes, protected bike lanes or other traffic calming features.
List of proposed streets:
- Aiken Ave Bike Facilities Ellsworth to Baum
- Beacon St Bike Lanes Wightman St to Shady Ave
- Beacon St Protected Bike Lanes Upgrade Wightman St to Schenley Park
- Shadyside Connector Neville to Negley
- Schenley Meadow Trail, Beacon to Bartlett
- Morewood Ave Protected Bike Facilities Forbes to Millvale
- Wightman Street Bike Lane Upgrade: Forbes to Beacon
