Sunday Video: Strip District Transportation and Land Use Plan


The City of Pittsburgh talks about the intricate relationship of transportation and land use planning by focusing on the revitalizing “Strip District.” They share how the city developed a comprehensive planning framework that built upon stakeholder desires for a safer, accessible, and diverse district. Recognizing that not all modes should share the same streets, they intentionally created parallel paths in the district with “The Cycle Way,” “The Green Way,” “The Transit Way,” “The Pedestrian Way,” and “The Through Way.”
