New Development: Allegheny Riverfront Green Boulevard
An ambitious plan comprising a wooded riverbank, recreational trails, overlooks, commuter rail and even stormwater management, the Allegheny Riverfront Green Boulevard began with community meetings in neighborhoods from the Strip District to Highland Park.
Funded with federal transportation monies, the plan aims to reorient neighborhoods toward the river on two segments:
The first tackles the shoreline between 11th and 31st streets. The second, from 31st Street to 62nd Street, pays special attention to boosting reuse of Lawrenceville’s industrial waterfront. Both halves of the plan aim to provide connection to the rivers as well as better transit to downtown.
