Penn Main District Study

Parking Consulting

With the anticipated move of the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh from Oakland to Lawrenceville, significant redevelopment is also expected to occur. Because of this, the area is expected to see a revitalization over the next few years.

With this growth in mind, the Lawrenceville Corporation spearheaded a study to improve the traffic, streetscape, parking and pedestrian conditions in the area.  Through a collaborative community involvement process, a phased program of desired improvements to be made over the next few years was developed.  From that program, a prioritized list of the improvements evolved.  In addition to creating community and action involvement plans and analyzing current and future parking conditions, Trans Associates and its team of sub-consultants analyzed traffic, transit operations and streetscape options.  Significant intersection and traffic signal improvements were identified to enhance pedestrian, bicycle, transit and vehicle movements at gateway intersections to Lawrenceville.
