Record Attendance for new “Tunnel to Town” OpenStreetsPGH Route

New OpenStreetsPGH route was a huge success

More than 25,000 people were estimated in attendance at last weekend’s OpenStreetsPGH – a free event connecting Downtown, Uptown, and the South Side. This brand new route connected 4 miles of car-free city streets.

OpenStreetsPGH invites the community to get outside and be active, providing an opportunity to reimagine our streets as places for people, not just cars. May was the just the beginning of the 2017 OpenStreetsPGH series with two more events scheduled for the year.
