Pittsburgh City Council gave preliminary approval on Wednesday to change street names in the heart of East Liberty.

Penn Circle South and East would become Centre Avenue and Centre would extend to East Liberty Boulevard. The name Collins Street would be eliminated. Penn Circle West would become North and South Euclid avenues. Penn Circle North would become Station Street. ‘

The Pittsburgh Address Committee recommended the changes to make the streets less confusing. The new names reflect old street names that were changed after public housing high-rises in the area opened. The high-rises have since been demolished.
