Schenley Meadow Trail, Beacon to Bartlett

Stay tuned to this page as the project develops.

The Project

The Schenley Meadow Trail are part of the overall Shadyside-Squirrel Hill network of projects, and will connect existing facilities on Beacon St to Schenley Park, improving connectivity throughout Squirrel Hill and to Oakland and Greenfield. The improvements have been identified in the City’s 2020 Bike(+) Plan.

The project will improve the overall connectivity and clarity in the Squirrel Hill bicycle network, and make it easier for people riding bikes, driving, or walking to navigate the streets and around each other. There are a significant number of crashes on this stretch of road that the project aims to mitigate and improve for all users.

Additionally, the route will improve access to destinations such as Schenley Park, the Greenfield Bridge, Oakland, and other locations.

Through key improvements, based on engineering best practices and community feedback, DOMI hopes to achieve safer, more comfortable streets for all users.

Why the Schenley Meadow Trail?

The recently adopted Bike(+) Plan calls to improve walking and bicycling throughout the area and has identified this section as a key missing link in the City’s Bike Network. There is a desire to connect these streets with a safe, easy to use facility.
