40th Bridge

This urban design project focused on the 40th Bridge in Lawrenceville. The existing narrow pedestrian path on the 40th Bridge is uninviting and dangerous with fast traffic running by it. The 40th Bridge is a vital connector between Lawrenceville and Millvale. However, the current conditions reflect undesirable and dangerous pedestrian experience despite the great view of downtown Pittsburgh. There are waterfront trails on both sides of the neighborhoods which is currently under-utilized due to the poor condition of the entrance.

This project starts with improving the entrance conditions to the riverfront trail, which will connect to a new pedestrian bridge added to the existing bridge. The goal of the project is to redirect the pedestrian and bike movement, and to activate the waterfront with more pedestrian activity. The new pedestrian bridge addition will not only act as a connector between Lawrenceville and Millville, but also become a destination where the two neighborhood can congregate and enjoy the amazing site location they live in.
