Public Meeting – Thursday, April 1: Perrysville Ave Improvements
Safe Access to Riverview Park
The Perrysville Ave improvements are part of the overall Northside network of projects, and seeks to add bike facilities on Perrysville Ave, between Charles St and Mairdale Ave. 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 and clarity in the bicycle network connecting to Riverview Park, and make it easier for people riding bikes, driving, or walking to navigate the streets and around each other. Perrysville is a popular bike route, yet many hazards still exist. Over the past five years, there have been a significant number of crashes on this stretch of road that the project aims to mitigate and improve for all users.
In addition to Riverview Park, the route will improve access to destinations such as several places of worship, the Perrysville business district, and Perry Traditional Academy.
Through key improvements, based on engineering best practices and community feedback, DOMI hopes to achieve safer, more comfortable streets for all users.
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 Perrysville Ave?
The recently adopted Bike(+) Plan calls to improve walking and cycling throughout the area and has identified Perrysville Ave as a street that residents would like to see these changes. Perrysville is a natural missing connection toward an overall safe bike network, and more safely connects residents to Riverview Park..
