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. 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 next public meeting is scheduled for Wednesday May 8th, from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at the Spartan Community Center of Hazelwood (134 East Elizabeth Street). The meeting is structured as an open house; you are welcome to stop by anytime between 6:00 and 8:00 p.m.
