Vote For Your Favorite City Steps

.

With over 800 staircases, Pittsburgh has the most public steps of any city in America.  In Greenfield we have staircases and jump-walks (*sidewalks with built-in steps) that make connections between streets and traverse our steep hills.

But with limited resources, the City of Pittsburgh needs to prioritize maintenance.

Vote For Your Favorite Steps!  Suggest improvements

  • Do you use City steps or jumpwalks(*) to get from place to place?
  • Are the steps in need of repair or maintenance (weeds or snow)?
  • Are there steps you’d use but they’re closed or too dangerous?
  • Do you have ideas on how to improve the City’s steps?

Learn about the steps and the project here:  Go to http://pittsburghpa.gov/dcp/dcp-mobility.html and click on the City Steps tab as shown above.

Then visit the City Steps wikimap to vote for the steps you use, report problem areas and suggest improvements at:
