Sidewalks & Traffic Calming

The Community Development Department has developed a plan for both traffic calming and a network of sidewalks and bikeways for the Township of Upper St. Clair. This site provides information on the Township's Traffic Calming Policy, as well as the design, goals, research, and recent developments of the sidewalks and bikeways plan. 

Traffic Calming Policy
The Board of Commissioners approved a revised traffic calming policy on Monday, Nov. 6, 2017. 

Sidewalks & Bikeways
The strong belief that sidewalks and bikeways are a critical component of desirable communities has been evident from the initial comprehensive update of the Sidewalks and Bikeways Plan in 1998 by former Director of Community Development, Pat Jones. Current Director, Adam Benigni and the Community Development staff provide various resources to help educate the public, and forward that belief.

Objectives
Beginning in the summer of 1998, the Township of Upper St. Clair Community Development Department sought to fully study a network of sidewalks that would foster the concept of community and that would increase the safety of transportation within the Township. It has been the goal of the department to plan the location of these sidewalks and bikeways with the needs of residents in mind to provide:

  • Students an opportunity to walk safely to school
  • Pedestrians the ability to travel to points of interest
  • Senior citizens the convenience to walk outdoors
  • Bicyclists the freedom to ride separate from motorized vehicles.
