Developer: City of Pittsburgh
Project Summary: The Department of Mobility and Infrastructure hosted two public meetings on September 24 and 26, 2019 to share updates about project timelines and collect community feedback. The City is working with engineering consultants at Michael Baker International to determine if the bridge will be rehabbed or replaced. This decision will not be made until fall 2021, when part of the design is complete. The project itself will take an additional two to three years to complete.
Residents discussed the following areas of concern at the September meetings: dangerous intersection at Parkview Ave and the Blvd of the Allies, impact of the project on surrounding properties, detours affecting traffic flow, narrow sidewalks along the bridge, protected bike lane, speeding on the Blvd of the Allies, and other opportunities for infrastructure updates to entrances into Schenley Park. There will be more public meetings to follow.
DOMI is still collecting community feedback. Submit your comments via the survey below on or before October 15, 2019.
