Connecting communities to the Commons
The North Ave Corridor project is part of the overall Northside Network of projects and will connect the City’s bike network between Manhattan St and Brighton Rd.
These improvements will better connect both existing and proposed pieces of the Northside’s bike network including W Ohio St, Brighton Rd, and the Commons Protected bike lanes. Additionally, it will provide safer access to Allegheny Commons and park amenities and destinations.
The project will improve the overall connectivity and clarity of the Northside’s bicycle network, and make it easier for people riding bikes, driving, or walking to navigate the streets and around each other.
There have been a significant number of crashes on this corridor, with 11 injuries over the past five years. Through key improvements, DOMI hopes to achieve safer, more comfortable streets for all users.
Improvements, depending on context and community input, could include:
- Speed humps
- Neighborhood Mini Traffic Circles
- Visual Narrowing/Curb extensions
- Pavement Marking Improvements

What is MoveForwardPGH?
MoveForwardPGH is a collaborative program between the City’s Department of Mobility and Infrastructure (DOMI), Bike Pittsburgh, and Healthy Ride to help rapidly implement the new Bike(+) Plan, as well as market how less stressful roadways are beneficial for everyone, regardless of how they use our streets. See the https://moveforwardpgh.org/ website for more information.
Why the North Ave Corridor?
The recently adopted Bike(+) Plan and the Manchester Chateau Neighborhood Plan calls to improve walking and cycling throughout the area and has identified streets that residents would like to see these changes. Additionally, there are a significant number of crashes and injuries on this stretch of road that the project aims to mitigate.
