Pittsburgh will expand the number of parking spaces at the head of the Eliza Furnace Trail set aside for those who want to leave their vehicles there and bicycle to work.
The spaces, which will be installed in the next few weeks, will replace spaces taken away recently in advance of the construction of a protected bike lane on Saline Street ion Greenfield. Until those spaces are ready, Mayor Bill Peduto's office said In a news release today, bikers can park at the soccer field in Junction Hollow, on Boundary Street just north of Saline Street.
The city expects to begin work on the new bike lane this week, weather permitting, and finish it in two weeks.
Additional lanes are expected to be finished in Schenley Park and on Penn Avenue, Downtown, before the international Pro Walk Pro Bike Pro Place conference convenes in the city in mid-September.
