Input is sought on a plan that could include increased traffic, pedestrian safety and negative business impacts on South Braddock Avenue, among other issues.
Leaders in the Regent Square community are letting their voices be heard about a proposed PennDOT plan for the Parkway East that includes metering or closing on-ramps during the morning and/or evening rush hours in the inner-ring communities. Elected officials have been meeting together and with PennDOT representatives. They are working on a one-voice, multi-front campaign to raise awareness of the complexities of this traffic mitigation plan and the negative impact they believe it will have on the communities. Of greatest impact to the immediate area would be the ramps on South Braddock in Regent Square and on Swissvale Avenue/Ardmore Boulevard.

The local gas station is going through a transformation.
The local Sunoco gas station at the corner of South Braddock and Hutchinson avenues is being torn down by construction workers, as a new Giant Eagle GetGo will replace it. Workers mounted the old gas pumps onto a truck Monday as they took away the old parts. Formerly owned by Dave Gerenyi, the change is occurring as he retired and sold the station to Giant Eagle.

The Sunoco station is being sold and currently is in talks with Giant Eagle.
The pending sale of Dave's Gerenyi's Sunoco gas station in Regent Square will bring about a major change in the neighborhood. While Gerenyi is in talks with Giant Eagle to bring in a GetGo gas station to fill the space, details have yet to be revealed and the sale is not yet final. "To me, it's not final until we sit down and sign everything," Gerenyi said. The Regent Square Civic Association recently sent a letter to Edgewood Council, the borough in which the gas station is located. "Although many of the neighbors and board members are saddened at the loss of this valuable business, we understand that the sale is an inevitable part of change that happens to all communities," the letter states. "However, because of the strategic location …
