PITTSBURGH, PA (October 16, 2018) In support of ongoing efforts to provide a more sustainable transportation system, the City of Pittsburgh’s Department of Mobility and Infrastructure is pleased to announce plans to create a new Pittsburgh Bike Plan. The Plan will develop guidelines and standards for bicycle facilities, as well as identity and propose improvements. Through the implementation of the new Bike Plan, Pittsburghers of all ages and abilities will have a better opportunity to incorporate bike riding into work commutes, recreation activities, daily errand-running, and social events.
Following an initial round of public outreach in 2016, the Department of Mobility of Infrastructure has released a draft bike network map and is looking for comments from residents. The interactive online map is a collaborative tool for collecting comments on specific routes and locations.
To better identify priority locations for walking and biking improvements and discuss goals and strategies for the Plan, two public meetings were held this month, with a final meeting set for 6 p.m. tonight at East Liberty Presbyterian Church, 116 S. Highland Drive.
