PITTSBURGH (KDKA)– Do you think the existing transportation networks in Pittsburgh work well?
Pittsburgh’s Department of Mobility and Infrastructure has its eyes set on the year 2070. The city has launched a 2070 transportation vision plan as a public engagement effort to revitalize Pittsburgh transportation.
The project reportedly challenges the public to think about the transportation needs and solutions if the city ever recovers a significant portion of the population over the next 50 years that was lost in the last half-century.
