Brighton Road Bike Lanes Public Meeting

Thursday, August 13th at 6:00 pm

As part of the MoveForwardPGH program, the Department of Mobility and infrastructure (DOMI) is partnering with Healthy Ride and Bike Pittsburgh on infrastructure improvements across Pittsburgh. Our goal is to inform communities about projects that will impact their neighborhoods, and to obtain feedback from residents regarding each project.

In this informative public meeting, we will talk about DOMI’s updated proposal for the Brighton Road bike lanes.

Brighton Road Bike Lanes

The Project

Brighton Road is a key missing piece in the expanding Northside bike network,and was identified in the Allegheny West Rejuvenation Plan as well as the City of Pittsburgh’s 2020 Bike Plan (+) as a needed north-south connector. Two blocks of Brighton Road, from Ridge Avenue to W North Avenue, are a part of this initial project. This project will connect to the existing bike network along W Ohio Street in Allegheny Commons Park and the two-way protected bike lanes around Allegheny Circle, that eventually connects to Downtown. It will also provide safer access for bicyclists entering the business district along Western Avenue, as well as to Community College of Allegheny County.

Bike Plan Upcoming Meetings

The City of Pittsburgh is thrilled to announce plans for a new Pittsburgh Bike Plan. Since the completion of the City’s first bike plan in 1999, many of the projects outlined in that plan have been installed, national best practices have changed and biking continues to be an important component in many Pittsburgher’s daily routines. 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.
