Pittsburghian Peds and Peddlers get $7M in 2008

Recently the City of Pittsburgh hired a Bicycle / Pedestrian Coordinator to help improve those of use who navigate these streets sans automotech. More recently, Venture Outdoors, an organization that provides resources to active outdoor types trying to experience everything this city’s immediate surroundings have to offer, put out an job advertisement for a Bicycle Coordinator, with a big focus on betting more cycling happening in 2008 for Pittsburgh’s 250 anniversary.

And now Pop City has two articles, one announcing $1.5M for pedestrian improvements in Oakland and another recounting the recent reopening of the Millvale Bridge, which connects Bloomfield to North Oakland, complete with new cycling facilities.

Such great news and so much of it is thanks to Bike Pittsburgh and everything they do in this city.
