July 2015 Meeting

The most recent MBBPC meeting was held on Thursday July 23.  Some highlights of the meeting:

  • On July 16, committee members including BikePgh representation met with Kathryn Power, Penn DOT District 11 Safety Engineer, at the Grant St./E. Ohio St. intersection to consider how to make the intersection safer and more bike-friendly.  The main concern was the proper placement of signage and sharrows to direct bike traffic through the intersection.  Kathryn asked us to create a plan for Penn DOT to consider, which we did on July 23.  The plan will be submitted to the Millvale Borough Council for approval, and then sent to Ms. Power.
  • We considered our options for installation of sharrows along Grant St. and North Ave.  Hopefully a contractor will be engaged by the end of next month.
  • The ARTEZ TAP (Transportation Alternative Program) will provide approximately $54,000 to Millvale for infrastructure improvements to promote bicycle and pedestrian safety and convenience.  Options are under consideration.
  • The BikePgh Confident Cycling class will be offered again during Millvale Days this fall. Details will follow.

All past minutes have been added to the Documents page on the Main Menu.

The next meeting will be on Thursday August 27 at 6 PM.
