MOVEPGH PRIORITIZATION WORKSHOPS

During the MOVEPGH public comment period, Pittsburgh residents and stakeholders submitted project ideas for Pittsburgh’s transportation future.  Some of them were small; some were BIG!  The MOVEPGH team, based on the public’s input, has assessed and prioritized these projects.  Here’s your first chance to see how they rank.
