East Liberty Bike Lane Projects

Latest Update (9/9/2020):

The Pittsburgh Department of Mobility and Infrastructure has shared the following update on the transportation projects that were discussed at the  East Liberty Blvd and Negley Run Blvd Bike Lane Upgrade public meeting on July 28th:

  1. East Liberty Blvd Bike Lane Upgrade project: Paused, Designs being updated

After hearing the concerns from residents and community organizations regarding impacts to parking and additional safety concerns for other modes of transportation on the corridor (transit and pedestrian access, engaging with vehicles, etc.), the Department of Mobility and Infrastructure (DOMI) paused the East Liberty Blvd project. The department is now developing new designs that reflects the needs expressed by the community, the focus will now be on improving intersection safety only. As soon as the designs are available, DOMI will schedule another public meeting, share all available content with neighborhood organizations, and reach out to the community to gather feedback on the new designs. 
2. Negley Run Blvd Bike Lane Upgrades: Needs Community Feedback
The Negley Run Bike Lane upgrade project received positive initial responses from the community. This project will not impact parking in the area and links to the Washington Blvd Trail connection. To see this project and the video for the first public meeting please go here:
