Open Streets Pittsburgh is scheduled for Sunday in Downtown, Strip District and Lawrencevile. Open Streets Pittsburgh is scheduled for Sunday, July 28, 2019, in Downtown, Uptown and the South Side.

Thousands of people are expected to stroll and bike through Pittsburgh’s Downtown, Uptown and South Side neighborhoods on Sunday during Bike Pittsburgh’s popular OpenStreetsPGH program.

Bike Pittsburgh said drivers should expect road closures in all three neighborhoods from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The 10th Street Bridge and Armstrong Tunnel will be closed. On the Birmingham Bridge, the southbound lanes will be reserved for Open Streets, while the northbound lanes are converted to car traffic in both directions.

Traffic will also be banned during the same hours on Forbes Avenue from Market Street to the Birmingham Bridge; and on East Carson Street from the Birmingham Bridge to 10th Street.

Cars parked along the route must be moved by 3 a.m. Sunday. All cars left on the street will be towed. Port Authority of Allegheny County bus riders can find a schedule of detours on the authority’s website.

The OpenStreets route, program hubs and 11 cross streets open to traffic can be found here.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
