PITTSBURGH, PA (September 14, 2021) The Department of Mobility and Infrastructure (DOMI) will be hosting a virtual public meeting next Tuesday, September 21 at 6:00 p.m. to collect feedback on the proposed changes to travel lanes, intersections, traffic operations and transit stops as part of the Liberty Avenue Safety Improvement Project in the Strip District.
The purpose of the Liberty Avenue Safety Improvement Project is to improve safety for people walking, biking, driving and taking public transit along Liberty Avenue in the Strip District between 11th Street and Herron Avenue. The project is still in the beginning stages of design, so DOMI will present the proposed design, which incorporates priorities identified in the community-led Strip District Plan as well as the City’s Pedestrian Safety Action Plan and Bike(+) Plan, at next week’s meeting.
Meeting attendees will have the opportunity to provide feedback on the preliminary design, which includes:
