Pittsburgh’s 25-year transportation plan, MovePGH, has been taking public comment over the last year to craft an ultimate vision.

“The preliminary list of projects is a lot more focused on small-scale neighborhood projects, like sidewalks, bike facilities, transit projects, a lot less focused on roadway widening projects than some previous plans have been. That’s one of the things we want to get reaction about, whether that’s the right focus,” said Paul Moore, project manager with the consultant team on the project.
