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
