Second Avenue Multimodal Study
In spring 2019, the Southwestern Pennsylvania Commission is sponsoring a Multimodal Corridor study of State Route 885/Second Avenue between the 10th Street Bridge and the interchange with State Route 837 (just south of the Glenwood Bridge). This route includes the Eliza Furnace Trail, the new Blair St multiuse path through Hazelwood Green, and the Hazelwood Trail; it connects to the Duck Hollow Trail at the Glenwood Bridge. The Furnace 2 Furnace Group prepared three reports (plus one later supplement) on opportunities for improving bicycling infrastructure as public comment on this study. They are available here

There will be a public meeting on this project Wednesday May 8th 2019, from 6 to 8 pm at the Spartan Community Center of Hazelwood (134 East Elizabeth Street). The meeting is an open house, you are welcome to join us anytime from 6 to 8 pm.  More information about the study, including our Existing Conditions Report, can be found on the project website:

East of Duck Hollow
In 2018 the five boroughs of Rankin, Braddock, north Braddock, East Pittsburgh and Turtle Creek developed and adopted an Active Transportation Plan lays out possibilities for a trail/road route through these boroughs. See especially the discussion of a potential Interworks Trail, a proposed 6.1 mile greenway that would connect Trafford, Monroeville, Pitcairn, North Versailles, Wilmerding, Turtle Creek, East Pittsburgh, North Braddock, Braddock, and Rankin via the path of the old Westinghouse Interworks Railroad.
