The Northside Network of projects involve a series of streets that could see a number of improvements that will create less stressful biking and walking connectivity within and through the neighborhoods, mostly in and around Manchester and Chateau. Concurrently, there is an EPA program to provide safe and environmentally-friendly connections between Manchester, Chateau and the riverfront that is planning to first improve the non-motorized connection under the State Route 65 underpass.
The Manchester and Chateau neighborhoods sit at the crossroads of several destinations, yet there remain significant barriers to safe walking and biking. Improvements along this cluster of streets, identified in the Manchester Chateau Neighborhood plan, will help address these issues.
Initial improvements that DOMI is looking at include:
- Manchester Chateau Network
- California Ave Corridor Phase 1
- Brighton Rd Improvements (North to California) Phase 2
- Columbus Ave Corridor
- North Ave Corridor
- Brighton Rd (Ridge to North) Re-Striping Project and FAQs
This network of streets will provide better access to: the Chateau and Manchester neighborhoods and the Chateau Trail, important corridors for accessing Downtown Pittsburgh and North Shore amenities; Ohio River Neighborhoods; Central Northside and CCAC; bicycling infrastructure on Brighton Rd and improved access to Riverview Park and Brighton Heights.
Through key improvements, DOMI hopes to achieve safer, more comfortable streets for all users. Improvements, depending on context and community input, could include such techniques as new road markings and crosswalks, Neighborways, bike lanes, or other traffic calming features.

FAQs about the projects
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 this cluster of streets?
The recently adopted 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 is an EPA grant that intends to create “green corridors” that are not only safer for walking and biking, but also include environmentally sustainable features to manage stormwater runoff.
