Developer: Southwestern Pennsylvania Commission (SPC)
Project summary: The City of Pittsburgh, Allegheny County, and Port Authority invited SPC to conduct a study to identify people's transit needs along Second Ave. The scope of this study includes Second Ave from the 10th St. Bridge to the Glenwood Bridge and Bates from Second up to the Boulevard. One component of the study will identify ways to improve transit connections for South Oakland residents with an emphasis on reducing the car-flow of single occupancy vehicles into Oakland and encouraging an overall mode shift to more efficient transit options. SPC held a public meeting on Feb 19th to solicit feedback from residents. A second public meeting took place on May 8th. This website has more information about the study and allows residents to provide comments through the project-comment form or through the interactive map: https://spcsecondavenue.com.
The final public meeting will take place on Thursday, July 25, 2019 at the International Union of Operating Engineers - Local 95, 300 Saline Street at 6:00 p.m.
