My idea is we have trouble of walking in the highway especially it's a busy road and we wanted to go in another street.  Why we make a skyway to make people more easy to walk,  more easy to go around even if they don't need to ride any cars or busses. Creat more highways for big trucks and busses for their own destination because as we know big truck are very dangerous for small cars in front or in back of them.  We should make a highways road for them to have less accident of cars and big trucks for the safety of both driver and the passengers. 

Describe who will use your solution (1,000 characters)

In my skyway it's in the poeole living in the area where there's a skyway for children, parents, old people, men, women to walk going on their school, in the church, in the market or in the mall and also for it attract tourists to see that Pittsburgh has a lot of skyway connected to each other in highway it's the driver of trucks, busses, cars and the passengers.

Describe your solution's stage of development

  • Initial Design - you are still exploring the idea and have not tested it with users
  • Prototype - you have built a prototype and tested it with potential users

Tell us about your team or organization (500 characters)

My organization is just very small but we're trying hard to make this idea realistic and could be able be approved to helo build Pittsburgh to a better cities for the future.

Size of your team or organization

  • 2-10

Funding Request

  • $100,000

Describe how you would pilot your idea (1000 characters)

In the fund giving below is not enough funding the pilot I wanted to make in skyways and more highways. I would love to tell the government on my idea and they able to give supporting money to make it true because this is not for me it's for the people to make things life easy and less hassle. Less accident and could able to do something because for sure people wouldn't use their car just to buy something on convenient store they would just use the skyway to walk going to the place they wanted to be.

Describe how you would measure the success of your pilot (1000 characters)

It would be success if my organization would promote it in tgd government because this is really a big idea that needs to be funded in the government. We can't work for this if we can't get the approval from the government and made it real for the people. I know this is possible to happen if tge government would be able to help and give the money that is needed to do the work as soon as possible.
