This public comment period has now closed.

[ English ] [ Español ] [ 中文 ] [ Italiano ] [ Indic ]

Downtown-Uptown-Oakland-East End Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Project: The proposed project will connect Downtown Pittsburgh with Uptown, Oakland, and other East End neighborhoods. It includes changes to both physical infrastructure and transit operations along the Downtown-Uptown-Oakland portion of the corridor (BRT Core) along with changes to transit operations and stations in the East End portion of the corridor – Highland Park, Squirrel Hill, and the East Busway. Capital improvements proposed as part of this project include: dedicated lanes, bus bump-outs, enhanced/branded stations, traffic signals, battery electric, branded buses and supporting infrastructure, and dedicated bicycle facilities. The total cost of the project in 2017 dollars is estimated to be $186.7 million with a total cost over the lifetime of the project at approximately $195.5 million.

Smart Spines (ATCMTD) Project: The proposed project includes improvements to approximately 126 intersections along 8 corridors in the City of Pittsburgh.  Improvements include new signals, addition of vehicular/pedestrian detection, audible pedestrian signals, countdown pedestrian signals and accessible ramps, and upgraded communications. The project also includes Downtown IT improvements; installation of an Ethernet radio system and a Vehicle Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC) system; and integration with Clever Devices. The total cost of the project in 2017 dollars is approximately $29.9 million.

Additional information on the Air Quality Determination and the proposed amendments to the 2017-2020 TIP and Mapping the Future is available for public review online beginning August 16, 2017 at www.spcregion.org, at the offices of SPC, the Pittsburgh Department of City Planning and Allegheny County Department of Economic Development, and at many public libraries in Allegheny County.

Upon consideration of public comments received, the Southwestern Pennsylvania Commission will consider action on the Air Quality Conformity Determination and adoption of the proposed 2017-2020 TIP and Mapping the Future amendments at their meeting at 4:30 p.m., on September 25, 2017 at Two Chatham Center, 112 Washington Place, 4th Floor, Pittsburgh, PA 15219.

Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Program (CMAQ)

SPC is now soliciting applications for candidate transportation projects to be considered for funding under the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program (CMAQ) in the 2019–2022 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). Completed applications are due by Friday, September 8, 2017. The CMAQ program provides funds for transportation projects and programs that will contribute to attainment or maintenance of the national ambient air quality standards for ozone, carbon monoxide, and particulate matter.

Any qualified government entity, including local governments, regional transit agencies, port authorities, and state agencies are eligible to apply for CMAQ funding. The CMAQ program provides up to 80% of total eligible project costs associated with costs for infrastructure type projects, and activities and operating costs for non-infrastructure projects. The minimum local share is 20% and must be provided from local, state, or other non-federal sources. Applicants are required to contact county and municipal government(s) where the project will be implemented to inform them of their intent to apply and to coordinate the project effort.
