Pittsburghers invited to share thoughts on new bike lane projects in city neighborhoods
A new proposed bicycle plan for Pittsburgh includes installing over 100 miles of new bike lanes.

PITTSBURGH — You’re invited to share your thoughts about new bike lane projects throughout several Pittsburgh neighborhoods.

MoveForwardPgh is hosting a virtual meeting Wednesday night to discuss several streets that could be impacted throughout Shadyside and Squirrel Hill to “create less stressful biking and walking” in those areas. The organization said “there remain significant barriers to safe walking and biking” in these neighborhoods.

The plans would allow better access to colleges and universities in Oakland, business districts, grocery stores, schools and hospitals.
