Some of the most difficult issues facing our neighborhood are related to traffic, particularly the number of vehicles that cut through Polish Hill and the speed at which many drivers move through our streets. We’ve been working with Zone 2 traffic division, District 7 Council office, and the City of Pittsburgh to find ways to slow down and perhaps reduce the traffic that comes through our neighborhood.
To request traffic calming improvements such as crosswalks, signage or speed humps, we need to have data to make the case, including as much input as possible from residents. To that end, we’ve created a traffic calming survey. If this is an issue you care about, please take a few minutes to fill out the survey.
Fill out the survey online, or pick up a paper copy at the PHCA office.
And if you use the East Busway, you might want to check out this mindmixer document from GoBurgh. You can add your own ideas to the document, which was created for residents to talk about what they like and don’t like about the bus way and the areas surrounding it.
