Gov. Wolf Announces Funding for Pittsburgh School and Sidewalk Safety Programs

The City of Pittsburgh was awarded more than $1.4 million in state transportation funding today in support of school and sidewalk safety initiatives championed by the Department of Mobility and Infrastructure (DOMI).

The two initiatives were among 82 transportation projects approved for funding today by Governor Tom Wolf and PennDOT Secretary Leslie S. Richards to enhance mobility and public accessibility statewide.

Pittsburgh received:

  • $464,011 to hire a full-time Safe Routes to School coordinator to increase safe walking and bicycling opportunities for city students, purchase and distribute safety items (helmets, lights, reflectors); and expand the after school bike program.
  • $980,000 to enhance pedestrian safety and access by constructing sidewalks within critical gaps throughout the city.
