It's A White (Paint) Christmas in Pittsburgh

scottbrickersmallIt’s already looking like a white Christmas for cyclists in the Steel City.

Thanks to the efforts of Bike Pittsburgh, streets are being trimmed with fresh white paint, marking new bicycle facilities across the East End.

According to BikePGH: “Over the past year, we worked diligently with the City of Pittsburgh to plan for and design over 12 miles of new bike lanes that we have been waiting patiently to see installed.”

Well, Santa came a little early: The waiting is over.

In recent weeks, city officials have striped a number of new bike lanes and installed a slew of sharrows. The advocates at Bike Pittsburgh have been involved throughout the process, so the bicycling facilities create a viable two-wheeling network.

“The city continued the expansion of the East End bike network this weekend with the addition of bike lanes on Dallas Avenue and shared lane markings, or sharrows, on Hamilton Avenue,” Erok Boerer, the group’s advocacy director, wrote on the BikePGH blog. “This adds to the recently installed markings on Highland Avenue and Wilkins Avenue that now connect six neighborhoods and three parks with clearly marked on-street bicycle infrastructure.”
