Next Pittsburgh digs into Pittsburgh’s newest street type, the low-stress Neigborway
People have strong opinions about any new bike lanes in Pittsburgh. But there’s a new piece of bike infrastructure coming to the city, called the Neighborway, that seems like it will be an easier sell. For one, it doesn’t affect street parking. Secondly, it promotes traffic calming on residential streets.
“I talk to people all over the city, and everybody wants traffic calming,” says BikePGH Advocacy Director Eric Boerer. “It’s a pretty universal thing. People don’t like seeing cars flying past down their street.”
