The city will begin work this week on new bike lanes in Downtown that will connect riders to the Great Allegheny Passage trail.
New lanes and shared lane markings will be installed along Third Avenue between Smithfield and Stanwix streets. Additionally, the bus lanes on both Wood and Smithfield streets will soon include shared bus-bike lane markings and will lead to a bus-bike-only lane on Fort Pitt Boulevard.
This is the first part of a two-phase bike infrastructure project and, weather permitting, is slated to be finished in October, according to a city news release.
