Pedestrian Fence on Forbes Ave between Bouquet St and Bigelow Blvd

Developer: University of Pittsburgh

Project Summary: University of Pittsburgh is planning to erect a fence along Forbes Avenue between Bouquet Street and Bigelow Boulevard. The fence, along the right side of Forbes, is intended to deter pedestrians from crossing Forbes. The fence will not block the bus stops at Bouquet or Bigelow and will allow space for two buses to queue up. Pitt will install a temporary fence when they put up the new light for the mid-block crossing in front of David Lawrence Hall, to be followed by the permanent installation. Pitt presented their plans to the art commission on 2/27.
