Speed bumps coming to streets in Pittsburgh’s South Side, Oakland

Pittsburgh is creating a bicycle and pedestrian route on Muriel Street in the South Side.

Pittsburgh is hoping to create a safer bicycle and pedestrian route in its South Side neighborhood with the installation of speed bumps and way-finding signs on Muriel Street and construction of a bike and pedestrian ramp under the Birmingham Bridge.

The city also plans to install speed bumps on Boundary Street in Oakland to slow traffic and make it safer for bikes and people.

Muriel Street between 13th and 16th streets will be closed for installation of speed bumps between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Tuesday and possibly Wednesday, according to the city’s Department of Mobility and Infrastructure.

In Oakland, the city is installing speed bumps on Boundary from Joncaire Street to Forbes Avenue along with bicycle directional signs in the neighborhood. DOMI reported that speed data collected in 2018 showed 87% of drivers on Boundary exceed a posted speed limit of 25 mph.

The city intends to close Boundary from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, weather permitting.

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.
