Here: In Beechview, Canton Ave. (part of the Dirty Dozen Ride)

Pittsburgh Post Gazette article. Sunday, January 30, 2005

Despite the twin "Do Not Enter" signs at its midpoint, Canton Avenue isn't a one-way street.
It's a no-way street.

No way you're going to drive up it. Not this time of year, when it's covered with ice and snow.

This Beechview byway is way too steep -- even to plow.

It's the steepest street in this hilly town and, probably, the region, with a grade of 37 percent -- that is, rising 37 feet per 100 feet of run. So confirm records from the city Department of Engineering and Construction.
