Community Meeting on Forbes & Braddock - 9/18/23

Project Description

**Provide feedback on this intersection in the short survey below**

This project involves the complete replacement of the traffic signal at the intersection of Forbes Avenue and Braddock Avenue, located in the City of Pittsburgh's Regent Square neighborhood. This intersection is located adjacent to a house of worship, a business district, and Frick Park and experiences significant pedestrian, cyclist and vehicular traffic. The intersection plays a vital role in the area's bicycle and pedestrian connectivity. In addition, Pittsburgh Regional Transit (PRT) bus routes 61A and 61B run through the intersection.

This project is funded by PennDOT's Green Light-Go Program, which is a competitive state grant program designed to improve the efficiency and operation of existing traffic signals located in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The project scope includes the complete redesign of the traffic signal infrastructure at this intersection. Upgrades include:

  • Improved intersection layout
  • New traffic poles
  • 12" vehicular signal heads with backplates
  • Traffic pole-mounted LED streetlights
  • Pedestrian countdown signals
  • Accessible pedestrian signals
  • ADA curb ramp construction
  • Signing and pavement marking improvements
