Come celebrate our neighborhoods’ new Neighborways – safer routes to better connect us all!
CELEBRATING NEIGHBORWAYS GROUP RIDE
FRIDAY, JULY 16th 2021
Start 5PM @ Spirit (Hatfield + 50th St.)
End @ Baum Grove (Roup Ave. + Harriet St.)
Check out the event details on the Facebook Event Page HERE!
Bloomfield Livable Streets is excited to team up with our neighboring bike/ped groups Better Streets Lawrenceville and Friendship Community Group to bring you this casual, fun, low-stress group bike ride. We’ll be riding through not one, but 2 Neighborways:
#1 Hatfield / Willow Neighborway in Lawrenceville
#2 Comrie / Coral Neighborway in Bloomfield + Friendship
We’ll be ending the ride with a BYO-Picnic at Baum Grove. The celebration is open to all, even if you couldn’t make the bike ride. Bring a snack, and meet some neighbors!
This group ride will show you one [easier] uphill bike route to connect between the 2 Neighborways to fully take advantage of this great network. Check out the route map below! And check out the 3 uphill bike options map below!
Hills are hard! So we’ve crowd-sourced 3 low-stress, car-lite shortcuts which neighbors use when they bike from Lawrenceville up to Bloomfield. And these options also connect to the 2 new Neighborways! Check out the 3 options on the map below.
And come out to the July 16th event to ride Option B (44th -> Cessna Wy -> Service Wy) with us!

NEIGHBORWAY COMPLETED! Watch Our Neighborway Ride Tutorial!
Come along on a bike ride along the Pittsburgh neighborhoods of Bloomfield & Friendship’s newest safe streets infrastructure called “Neighborways.” Stretching from Comrie Way in Bloomfield all the way west along Coral Street in Friendship, this Neighborway (installed in 2020/2021) connects residential neighborhoods through slower and safer side streets parallel to busy Penn Avenue.
The Neighborway features traffic calming infrastructure such as mini-roundabouts, painted bumpouts, bollards, signage, and pedestrian islands. Come along for this tutorial ride!
This project was made possible through Pittsburgh’s Department of Mobility & Infrastructure, MoveForwardPGH, BikePGH, and HealthyRide. And was advocated for by Bloomfield Livable Streets, Bloomfield Development Corporation, and Friendship Community Group.

The Department of Mobility & Infrastructure (DOMI) is seeking input from Bloomfield Livable Streets on Wayfinding Signage for the upcoming Neighborway. And we thought what better way to identify local destinations than by asking YOU! With your local knowledge & experiences, check out these 8 sets of Wayfinding Signage proposed by DOMI over these 2 pages, and give us your feedback, suggestions, and comments. If you love them, let us know too! We’ll pass the comments back to DOMI by SUNDAY, 10/4.
Some design parameters to consider:
– No wayfinding to private businesses.
– Each sign shouldn’t have more than 3-4 destinations.
– Each sign’s format will consist of a destination, the arrow direction (F=Forward, L=Left, R=Right) and the distance.
If you have more comments about the signage that cannot be expressed through this survey, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll make sure to include them in our comments back to DOMI.
Submit Public Input by Tuesday, Sept. 15th
We hope you too support this intersection design, and ask DOMI to ensure that safety & equity drive the project. Provide online feedback for the new intersection design proposal (or any part of the Comrie/Coral Neighborway project) HERE on the City’s Engage Platform.
All comments must be in by Tuesday, September 15.
Ask City Engineers “In-Person” Questions On Sept. 8th & 10th
