Re: “New steps being installed in Oakland include a small ramp for bikes

I've found the runnel on local steps (going down to The Run from Greenfield Ave.) hard to use. You have to hold the bike back and upright from above, or push it from below. I've concluded that it's just as easy/difficult to carry the bike. Anybody else?

Re: “What's a sneckdown and what does it teach us about Pittsburgh road design?

About four years ago I proposed identifying sneckdowns as part of a green infrastructure funding proposal to the Allegheny County Conservation District. Trees and other greenery can be planted in sneckdowns to help capture stormwater and reduce the amount of impervious surface in the city. I got the idea from Pitt Prof. Dan Bain.

Re: “At this year’s Thrival Festival some were left high and dry by long lines

On the Saturday afternoon of the event, I was surprised by the fact that you could hear very offensive rapping all up and down the Valley (e.g., some lame WuTang tribute crew ended its set by shouting "word, m--f--'er" over and over and over. After about the 7th repetition I stopped laughing and just felt sad.) I'm sure the good folks of Rankin, Swissvale and Homestead were thrilled to be exposed to so much music/noise.

Re: “A proposed highway cap won’t help the Lower Hill

Clear-eyed analysis beats blind Chamber-of-Commerce cheerleading every time. And let's not forget all of the Hill District connections to Uptown (the Fifth/Forbes corridor). Knitting together those two neighborhoods would be a boost to both Oakland and Downtown.

Re: “PennDOT Bike/Ped coordinator visits Pittsburgh, vows to update and improve Pennsylvania’s bike and pedestrian policies

I thought the planing department smoothed out rough boards.
