DOMI to Install Speed Humps on Bartlett Street

PITTSBURGH, PA (November 7, 2021) The City of Pittsburgh’s Department of Mobility and Infrastructure (DOMI) will begin working on the Squirrel Hill East-West Connector project on November 8, 2021, with pavement markings and construction of two (2) speed humps on Bartlett Street between Murdoch Street and Serpentine Drive and is expected to last up to two weeks, weather permitting. Intermittently, traffic will be detoured to avoid construction on this segment of Bartlett Street. The detour will be Hobart Street to Beacon Street to Murdoch Street.

Some of the project has been delayed until spring 2022. The signs put up in the corridor announcing construction is coming soon are no longer correct. Procurement issues and weather conflicts have caused this delay.

This project is part of DOMI’s Move Forward program, which aims to implement DOMI’s Bike+ Plan. The corridor will better connect Schenley Park, including the recently reopened Serpentine Drive, to Frick Park and the bike lanes on Beechwood Boulevard, while also connecting to existing bike lanes on Wightman Street. Traffic calming throughout the corridor and a contra-flow bike lane from Murdoch Street to Shady Avenue will create comfortable, bi-directional travel for cyclists while maintaining existing, legal parking spaces and all existing motor vehicle access.

Thank you for your cooperation during this time. We hope there will be only minor inconveniences. If you have any questions or require further information regarding this project, you may contact the City’s Response Center by calling 311 or 412-255-2621. If you have questions about this project or other DOMI Move Forward bike projects, you may contact us by email at moveforwardpgh@gmail.com.
