A model for people first streets opens in Pittsburgh – Lytle Street at Hazelwood Green

On January 30, 2019, Lytle Street in Hazelwood Green was officially dedicated to the City of Pittsburgh and opened to the public. This street design and construction was a 2+ year process to challenge the norm and prioritize people over vehicles. Lytle Street makes use of many best practices that are new to Pittsburgh including: chicanes, floating bus islands, raised (tabletop) intersections, sidewalk-level bicycle lanes, bicycle and pedestrian counters, and directional detectable pavers. The occasion was marked by the public and stakeholders with hot chocolate and a ribbon cutting.
