I think this was a huge waste of money and doesn't serve the city well as far as the GAP is concerned. I would rather see a route through downtown to get from the point to the north side. Pittsburgh has some awesome architecture. Some of the best in the world and it should be enjoyed by visitors. I had a friend come visit from Slovenia and he was very impressed with many of our buildings. That says a lot considering all the wonderful architecture that can be found through Europe and eastern Europe.

It does keep folks off of the streets and on the trails but I can't think of a street in the downtown area were I feel uncomfortable riding even during rush hour.

I just hope this connection doesn't encourage people from taking the direct route to get onto the GAP rather than take a few minutes to tour though on wonderful city and marvel at all of the architecture that you will never see built again.
