SPC’s Corridor Studies: A Multimodal Approach to Regional Planning

UCSUR’s Brown Bag Speakers Series Presents David Totten, AICP, Transportation Planner, Southwestern Pennsylvania Commissio and Dominic D’Andrea, P.E., PTOE, Manager, Operations & Safety Programs, Southwestern Pennsylvania Commission

The Southwestern Pennsylvania Commission’s new project to study the State Route 885/Second Avenue corridor represents a new approach to transportation planning in our region, involving more inter-agency collaboration and coming from a multimodal perspective. SPC is undertaking this effort in cooperation with government agencies such as Allegheny County, the City of Pittsburgh and the Port Authority of Allegheny County as well as the non-profit development entity that controls the brownfield site at Hazelwood Green. This presentation will demonstrate how planning for this corridor will focus on decreasing single-occupancy vehicle trips; use multimodal mobility to enable rapid, reliable, sustainable and resilient growth and development; and preserve and enhance the local quality of life and economic prosperity along the corridor.


Domenic D’Andrea, P.E., PTOE, is the Manager of Transportation Operations and Safety Programs at SPC and is responsible for work program elements such as the Congestion Management Process, the Regional Operations Plan, the Regional Safety Action Plan, the Regional Traffic Signal Program, and regional ITS Planning and Implementation. Mr. D'Andrea is a registered PE in the State of Pennsylvania and has over 30 years of experience in managing transportation capital programs, projects, and studies in the Pittsburgh region.
