Squirrel Hill Historical Society presents program on Neill Log House restoration
This month's Squirrel Hill Historical Society program was a report on the Neill Log House restoration project.
The Fern Hollow Bridge played an integral role in connecting Squirrel Hill with Point Breeze and Regent Square. During the closure and rebuilding process, we would like to provide some alternative travel routes.
1. Alternative Bike Route | Credits to SHUC’s Pedestrian and Bicycle Committee (Mary Shaw, Roy Wei, Marshall Hershberg, Rich Feder and Paul) as well as Ted King-Smith (Bike Pittsburgh)
From Squirrel Hill, take a left onto Beechwood Blvd, then right onto Wilkins, left on S. Dallas, right onto the Reynolds St. Neighborway. Follow the path until it ends. Then, take a right onto the car-free Hawthorne trail (past The Frick Bowling Greens) which connects to Kensington St. from Kensington. Finally, make a right onto S. Braddock Ave. The reverse path can be followed to enter Squirrel Hill from Regent Square. This route has bike lanes along Beechwood Blvd and avoids Dallas Ave which will have heavy traffic (including rerouted public buses). Click here to view an interactive map (Google Maps).
