Overview

Stanton Avenue Complete Streets Phase 2 follows the Department of Mobility & Infrastructure's Stanton Avenue Complete Streets Phase 1 project to make a safe and comfortable connection for all users on Stanton Avenue from Chislett Street to Meadow Street/Heberton Street.

This project design will respond to documented speeding issues by adding traffic calming improvements to the corridor. The design will also work to improve transit stops, create safer connections for cyclists, and improve pedestrian crossings.


This project was announced at the Highland Park Town Hall in Spring 2023.

FAQ

Why make Stanton Avenue a bike connection?

This project was identified in the city's Bike+ Plan as a major connection route between neighborhoods in the area.

Why does Stanton Avenue need traffic calming?

Speed and volume data shows that most drivers are comfortable driving 30 to 32 mph, a departure from the posted speed limit of 25 mph. These high speeds, paired with a significant crash history demonstrate a need for traffic calming.

How will this project effect buses?

The project is not expected to affect bus operations. Pittsburgh Regional Transit operates transit services on over a dozen streets with bike lanes and/or traffic calming, and are being coordinated with on this project. Pedestrian improvements will help transit riders access their stops.
