Pennsylvania: Brighton Rd to Manhattan Ave

Stay tuned to this page as the project develops.

Connecting the Chateau Trail to Riverview Park

The Project

The Pennsylvania Ave bike facilities project is part of the overall Northside network of projects, and seeks to add bike facilities on Pennsylvania Ave between Brighton and Manhattan. The improvements have been identified in the City’s 2020 Bike(+) Plan as well as the Manchester Chateau Neighborhood Plan.

The project will improve the overall connectivity, clarity, and traffic calming in the bicycle network making it easier for people riding bikes, driving, or walking to navigate the streets and around each other.

The route will also improve access to destinations such as the Brighton Rd business district, several schools, and Allegheny Commons Park. It is part of an overall traffic calming program within the Manchester neighborhood.

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

FAQs

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 Pennsylvania Ave?

The recently adopted Bike(+) Plan as well as the Manchester Chateau Neighborhood Plan calls to improve walking and cycling throughout the area and has identified Pennsylvania Ave as a street that residents would like to see these changes. Pennsylvania Ave is a natural missing connection toward an overall safe bike network.
