EXPANDING BIKE AND PEDESTRIAN CONNECTIONS
Providing more alternatives to vehicular traffic
DESIGN PHASE TO BEGIN
The City of Pittsburgh’s Department of Mobility and Infrastructure (DOMI) will initiate the Preliminary Design Phase for the Mon-Oakland Mobility Project this summer (2019) in conjunction with the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority’s (PWSA) Four Mile Run (4MR) Stormwater Improvement Project.
The purpose of the Design Phase is to advance the conceptual plan derived from the Mon-Oakland Mobility Study completed in Fall 2018. The design will be advanced in conjunction with the Four Mile Run Stormwater Improvement Project, and the two design teams are working together to ensure that the projects accommodate and complement each other.
The intention is to implement a mobility solution simultaneously with stormwater improvements to maximize efficiency and minimize cost and disruption to residents. The proposed connections are intended to provide alternatives to vehicular traffic, and supplement the public transit system in the area, providing an additional mode of travel to and from major employment centers.
