Weigh in on the City’s Plans to Make Biking Around Downtown Safer
The City of Pittsburgh’s Department of City Planning has been working over the past year to develop bike lanes in and around Downtown Pittsburgh. The lanes will not only extend the existing Penn Ave Bike Lanes to Point State Park, but also cross town along Stanwix St to connect to the Monongahela River and the Eliza Furnace Trail/Great Allegheny Passage (GAP). Connecting the GAP Trail to the Point has been a priority for a number of years. The project aims to not only make it easier for residents to get to their jobs in downtown, but to make sure that the thousands of tourists riding between Pittsburgh and Washington DC on the GAP, are able to access our restaurants and businesses in the City’s core.
Cycling is one of the most fastest and most efficient ways to navigate Downtown Pittsburgh, so expanding this infrastructure will encourage more to do so, while reducing the number of automobiles in the compact neighborhood.
Residents, visitors, and commuters to Downtown Pittsburgh: Come hear about the long awaited bicycle connection between Point State Park and the Great Allegheny Passage!
