PITTSBURGH (KDKA)– The Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership is seeking to hear opinions from residents about the access and mobility of transportation in the downtown area.
Our partners at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that the partnership has created a survey to develop a new Downtown Pittsburgh Mobility Plan that will make navigating in the city easier for riders who work, live, and visit the city.READ MORE: COVID-19 In Pennsylvania: State Reports 5,786 New Cases, 72 Additional Deaths
Chris Watts, Vice President of Mobility at Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership said, “It’s designed to make immediate changes. This plan is about the immediate ways Downtown can be optimized to provide better mobility and access to the people who use it.”
Some changes will include prioritizing streets for delivery trucks, pedestrian walkways, and through traffic on certain roads.READ MORE: Death Penalty Sought Against Krisinda Bright, Ambridge Mother Accused Of Killing Her 2 Kids
“Some people think there’s too much traffic and not enough parking and other people like the walkability of Downtown and want to see that made even easier. We have to hear from everyone and see how we can meet their needs,” said Watts.
The new development will cost an estimated $3.8 billion.MORE NEWS: Mustafa Alowemer, North Side Church Bomb Plot Suspect, Pleads Guilty To Aiding ISIS In Federal Court
