Residents Invited to Leave Their Autos Behind and Hit the Streets Print E-mail

 

Cities across the country have embraced the “open streets” movement, which encourages residents to explore their neighborhoods without the use of a motor vehicle. The first suburban open streets event in the Pittsburgh area is scheduled to be held on October 17th on Brownsville Road. Our municipal Main Street will be closed to automobiles between Route 51 and the Brentwood Park entrance from 9AM to 1PM. This well-traveled urban space will be temporarily transformed into an open space for walking, biking, running, skating, exercising, dancing, shopping, socializing, and much, much more.

 

Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to take back the streets! Join us as we promote healthy and active lifestyles, green transportation options, and local businesses.

 

Volunteers are needed to assist the the operation of the event.  Additionally, area businesses are encouraged to participate in the program by offering recreational activities to visitors.  To enroll in either capacity, contact Stephanie Miller at 412-884-1400 x103. For more information, see the attached flyer.

"Yard Sale of the Century" Unites Neighbors Over Bargains Print E-mail

 

A classic idiom states that one man’s trash can be another man’s treasure. Nowhere does this expression hold more true than at yard sales, where a diverse selection of new and used goods are made available at discounted prices. As part of its ongoing celebration of our municipality’s 100th birthday, the Brentwood Centennial Committee is sponsoring a community-wide yard sale event, which will take place from 8AM to 3PM on August 8th. The public is invited to peruse an assortment of goods, from the conventional to the unusual, at over 60 separate sites. Remember not to limit your patronage to the main drags, as a number of residents of our less travelled thoroughfares are scheduled to participate!

 
PennDot Works to Keep Municipalities, Citizens Abreast of Route 51 Upgrades Print E-mail

 

On June 15, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation launched a $15.9 million project to repair Route 51 between Lebanon Church Road and the Liberty Tunnels. Construction will include road milling and resurfacing, signal improvements, drainage enhancements, curb upgrades, bridge repairs, pavement markings, and other critical items. Although road repairs are critical for ensuring that people and goods and can safely reach their intended destinations, it is acknolwedged that construction delays can become a significant headache for time-strapped travellers. PennDot has set up several mechanisms to keep both local officials and the general public informed about this major project, which is scheduled to run through June 2016.  Individuals can view construction information and project time tables electronically here. At the same link, residents will also have a chance to sign up to receive traffic advisories via email. Additionally, an informational hotline will be staffed on weekdays from 8:30AM to 5PM. Inquiries should be directed to 412-533-4602.
