Brighton Road Bike Lanes Public Meeting
June 23, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The Department of Mobility and infrastructure (DOMI) is partnering with Healthy Ride and Bike Pittsburgh on infrastructure improvements across Pittsburgh. Our goal is to inform communities about projects that will impact their neighborhoods, and to obtain feedback from residents regarding each project.
In this informative public meeting, we will talk about DOMI’s proposal for the Brighton Road Bike Lanes. Brighton Road was identified in the City of Pittsburgh’s 2020 Bike Plan as a north-south connector for the bike network. Two blocks of Brighton Road, from Ridge Avenue to W North Avenue, are a part of this initial project. This project will connect to the existing bike network along W Ohio Street in Allegheny Commons Park and the cycle-track around Allegheny Circle. It will also provide safer access for bicyclists entering the business district along Western Avenue.
Brighton Road is a two-way street with parking on both sides from Ridge Avenue to Western Avenue. From Western Avenue to W North Avenue, Brighton Road continues to be a two-way street but with two travel lanes in each direction. An inconsistent parking demand on the street leaves a wide driving area for motorists, a condition which has shown to increase speeding. Parking will remain along the corridor. A parking protected bike lane on the residential side of the street side proposed.
