Riverview Dr: Mairdale Ave to Riverview Ave.

Stay tuned to this page as the project develops.

Connecting neighbors to Riverview Park

The Project

The Riverview Drive bike facility is part of the overall Northside network of projects, and seeks to add bike facilities on Riverview Drive, between Mairdale and the Riverview Ave loop road within Riverview Park – very popular bicycling destination. 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. Riverview Dr is a popular bike route, yet many hazards still exist. 

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 Riverview 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. Riverview Drive is the only access road from the western side of Riverview Park, is a missing connection toward an overall safe bike network, and more safely connects residents to Riverview Park.
