Pittsburgh city council committee approves funding for more bike lanes in the city

The Public Works Committee of Pittsburgh City Council voted on a measure Wednesday to authorize over $800,000 to complete two bike lane projects in the city. 

One lane will complete a project known as “GAP to the Point”- a downtown connection of the Greater Allegheny Passage, a trail that travels from Washington D.C. to Pittsburgh, between Grant Street and Point State Park. The other will extend the East Street bike lane from Suffolk Street to meet Mount Pleasant Road, near I-279 in Pittsburgh's North Side neighborhood.

Pittsburgh City Council receives update on plan to fix city's facilities and assets

Members of the Mayor Peduto’s administration came before Pittsburgh City Council on Tuesday during a Post Agenda meeting to lay out the status of the Facilities Optimization Plan. 

The 40-year facilities optimization plan is the result of an ongoing, comprehensive facility management study of Pittsburgh, done by Massaro Corp., that evaluates the city’s approximate 300 structures that total more than 2.1 million square feet of building space. 

The study came after an executive order made by Mayor Peduto last June to enact a long-term, strategic investment and maintenance plan for city owned facilities, as part of the Pittsburgh’s comphrensive fixed asset management system.
