At Better Streets Lawrenceville, we advocate for changes throughout Lawrenceville and surrounding neighborhoods. Here is a partial list of some of our recent successes.

Park(ing) Day 2022

As part of the international Park(ing) Day movement, we reimagined parking spots at Butler and Main on September 16th, 2022, creating a social space where over three dozen community members joined us to chat about pedestrian safety, wheelchair access, and complete streets.

We shared Lawrenceville Corporation’s Butler Streetscape Plan with the public, which was featured on WPXI.

40th & Penn intersection

BSL and York Commons with LU and Age Friendly PGH advocated for improved safety at intersection after a resident of York Commons was hit by a vehicle. Results were a new traffic signal with leading pedestrian interval along with other pedestrian-friendly improvements, including No Turn on Red.

40th Street

We have worked with the city, Lawrenceville United, and Councilwoman Deb Gross to get these sidewalks repaved and ask event organizers to ask their attendees to not park on the sidewalk.

There is more work to do on this street, but we have made significant progress.

Lawrenceville Crossings

May 2017: BSL organized a “Crossings” event in Lawrenceville with Age Friendly Pittsburgh and Lively Pittsburgh that brought out residents to take over dangerous intersections at 40th & Butler, 40th & Penn, 40th & Davison and encourage motorists to slow down
