We're getting technical with transportation--come and get your hands dirty.

MOVEPGH Community Workshop #4 is focused on transportation issues in Pittsburgh’s East End neighborhoods.  This large area includes all the neighborhoods between the rivers (except for Downtown/Lower Hill and the riverfronts - Click here to view a map of the workshop focus geographies). The workshop is open to the public – even if you do not live in these areas.

About the MOVEPGH Design Workshops:

MOVEPGH Workshop #4 is the fourth of four (4) week-long MOVEPGH public designworkshops to be held around the City over a period of six months. Each workshop highlights different portions of the City of Pittsburgh--Click here to view the map of focus geographies of all four workshops.  These “design studio” workshops are multi-disciplinary, working design sessions where stakeholders, designers, technical experts, and the public work together to develop, design and plan solutions.  The MOVEPGH team works all week long in a different location for each of the four Workshops to develop and test various design and planning ideas related to:

  • transportation solutions for areas of change and redevelopment;
  • expanding multi-modal choice;
  • developing street designs and complete streets;
  • creating interlinked bike, pedestrian, transit, and street networks;
  • protecting areas of no change;
  • expanding connectivity;
  • selectively expanding vehicle capacity

Workshop Format:

Each of the four workshops follows a similar schedule:

Day 1, 2, & 3 – Daytime Open House work sessions

Day 3 – Evening Wrap-up event

Daytime Open Houses provide great opportunities for community groups, residents, the business community and others to interact with the planning team by expressing their ideas, plans, and concerns. Drop in any time!

Evening Wrap-up Meetings summarize all of the input received during the previous four days and offer another opportunity for an interactive discussion with other stakeholders and the MOVEPGH Team.
