Mayor Bill Peduto likes to talk about creating a “superhighway. “Not another parkway. Not a new busway. A superhighway … for bicycles.
The city’s first two-way bicycle lanes will be built in Schenley Park, Greenfield and downtown on Penn Avenue, with construction scheduled to begin next month.
After two fatal bicycle accidents, there are calls for major changes along a stretch of Penn Avenue to fix what bike advocates say is an unsafe roadway.
