Looking for a calmer, less stressful alternative to Penn Avenue?
The Bloomfield/Friendship Neighborway connects Bloomfield & Friendship via Coral Street and Comrie Way, to Friendship Ave near Children’s Hospital and the Negley Ave bike lanes. The route includes wayfinding signage, neighborhood traffic circles, sharrows, bump-outs, and other traffic calming measures.
A Neighborway is the newest street type in the City of Pittsburgh. It’s a street, or series of connected streets, where motor vehicle speeds and volumes are kept low to make it more comfortable for existing residents, while also making it safer for people to walk, ride a bike, and for kids to play.
Neighborways are located on low-volume residential streets and provide a low-stress alternate route to a major arterial while discouraging drivers from using the street as a cut-through. Because Neighborways are traffic-calmed and do not include bike lanes, the impact on parking or the existing street layout is minimal.
Visit the Bloomfield/Friendship Neighborway and experience the streets of Pittsburgh with less stress and more safety.
