The roadway conversion has been planned at this location for many years, and the public and private developers are eager to see it to completion. The roadway conversion is the culmination of a public input process and extensive coordination with DOMI, the PWSA, PennDOT, and BikePGH. It will meet the community needs by providing shorter pedestrian crossings, bicycle network connectivity, new pedestrian and bicycle signalization, and decreased traffic speed and volume through the corridor. The block between Baum Boulevard and Centre Avenue (adjacent to the existing Whole Foods) will be turned over to PennDOT. The rest of the cartway will be turned over to the City
