The Urban Redevelopment Authority of Pittsburgh (URA) retained Perkins Eastman Architects and TA to conduct a planning study of the Allegheny riverfront. The Allegheny Riverfront Vision Plan seeks to create a comprehensive and unified vision for the redevelopment of 6.5 miles of the Allegheny’s south shore stretching from 11th Street in the Strip District to Highland Park and a small area on the north shore at the 16th Street Bridge. The study area involves hundreds of parcels, both publicly and privately owned.
TA’s services include a general review of existing transportation conditions including vehicles, pedestrians, truck traffic and bicycles, and evaluation of potential changes to the transportation network as the Visioning process unfolds. The study extensively evaluated intermodal and multi-modal alternatives with investigation of the interface between river traffic, commuter rail, public transit, bicycles, pedestrians, truck traffic and automobiles.
