EAST LIBERTY (KDKA) – Pittsburgh leaders are updating the city’s bike plan for the first time in more than 20 years.
The second of two public meetings this month was held in East Liberty Tuesday night.
The city has drafted a map of the new bike lanes and improvements, which they say will address gaps in the system.
Through the implementation of the new system, Pittsburghers of all ages and abilities will have a better opportunity to incorporate bike riding into commuting and other daily activities.
However, the plan is not set in stone.
“So the goal is to publish a plan sometime early next year that lays out the priorities and the framework. And then, select projects that come out of that plan for installation over the next few years,” Alex Pazuchanics, of the Pittsburgh Department of Mobility, said.
The city is asking for the public’s feedback on the new map, which can be viewed on their website here.
