PENN AVE RECONSTRUCTION

The BGC is leading other neighborhood organizations as we work with the city on the first phase of Penn Avenue infrastructure reinvestment. Construction for Phase 1 is in progress.

This $5 million infrastructure reinvestment project is being undertaken with the City of Pittsburgh Department of Public Works, PennDOT and L.R. Kimball Engineers.  Phase 1 covers Penn Avenue from Mathilda to Evaline Streets and is set to include:

  • New street surfacing
  • New sidewalks and landscape treatments
  • New traffic control equipment
  • Improved lighting
  • New streetscaping, such as benches and artistic tree grates

Documents related to the progress of this plan are available for viewing and download at the project website.
