Developer: City of Pittsburgh
Project summary: PWSA’s 4 Mile Run Watershed Restoration project will daylight 4 Mile Run and alter the grading in Junction Hollow, necessitating the reconstruction of trails that currently traverse Junction Hollow. The city’s Department of Mobility and Infrastructure is currently investigating options for supporting mobility through this area, including a pedestrian and bicycle path and the possibility of a trail that could carry light transit between Fifth Avenue and Hazelwood.
At a public meeting on June 20, 2019, DOMI and PWSA presented preliminary ideas for two distinct trails: 1) a mobility corridor that is publicly controlled and accessible to cyclists, small electric shuttles, and users of devises like e-scooters/e-blikes and 2) a trail to support non-motorized transportation for pedestrian and casual cyclists use. No specific design details are currently available for review.
Another meeting to provide updates is scheduled for November 2019. Currently, construction is planned to begin in the fall of 2020. The Mon-Oakland Mobility Project website has been updated with current information, as well as links to past meeting notes.
