Give Your Feedback about Phase II Reconstruction of Penn Ave on February 6

How do you envision Penn Ave?

The City is beginning the planning for the Phase II reconstruction of Penn Ave between Evaline St. and N. Graham St. This section of roadway lies in one of Pittsburgh’s busiest areas and is the diving line between three neighborhoods: Bloomfield, Garfield, and Friendship.

This Thursday, February 6, the City invites residents and concerned citizens to weigh in on its plans for the 4 block section of Penn Ave. As a major connection to downtown and points east, while also functioning as a neighborhood street, this section of Penn Ave. has major room for improvement.

The City will present their plans and take comments and input from the public. We encourage as many people to come out and to give feedback about the traffic plans, pedestrian safety, bicyclist safety, and transit issues. Come and be an active part of the planning process for the streets that shape our lives and how we get around.

It should also be noted, that while the reconstruction will only affect the design of four blocks, the construction process of the street will affect all traffic along the route.
