With a population of 307,484, the city of Pittsburgh in Allegheny County is the second largest city in Pennsylvania. Pittsburgh is home to three professional sports franchises: the Pittsburgh Penguins (ice hockey), Pittsburgh Pirates (baseball) and Pittsburgh Steelers (football), who were named after the city’s once-booming steel industry. The Steelers are the most popular team in the city. Every Steelers home game since 1972 has sold out.
Access to Pittsburgh from the northern cities in the state would likely be Interstate 79. Interstate 76 would be the most likely route from the east. Both of these Interstate highways are major travel routes for the state of Pennsylvania. U.S. Routes 19 and 422 are also widely used in District 9.
Due to the population density in Pittsburgh and the surrounding towns, the district sees a fair amount of car crashes every year. In 2011, there were 14,305 car accidents that resulted in 101 deaths and 8,952 injuries. That total represents the fourth-most car accidents of any district in Pennsylvania. Trucking accidents are a different story for District 11 – there were a total of 52 fatal truck accidents between 2006 and 2010. This was the third-lowest total of all the districts in that time frame.
Average weather conditions in Pittsburgh and surrounding areas are very similar to other parts of western Pennsylvania. Snow conditions are not usually severe in winter months, and local snow removal teams in the city and surrounding areas do a good job of keeping roads clear and salted. It is always advisable to use extreme caution when the weather turns bad, and only drive during a storm when necessary.
