USDOT plants a flag for Opportunity

In Pittsburgh, a TIGER grant is helping the Sports & Exhibition Authority of Pittsburgh and Allegheny County plan a cap over I-579 (known locally as Crosstown Boulevard). The cap will not only restore access to downtown Pittsburgh, but will also create a new public green space and generate private economic development.  So yes, transportation drives opportunity. And it will continue to do so as long as our transportation stakeholders and decision makers consider the many people “in between.”
