PWSA IS “POTHOLING” IN UPPER LAWRENCEVILLE
The Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority (PWSA) is conducting investigative digging in Upper Lawrenceville. The process being used is commonly called “potholing.” This work is supports future water main replacement.
“Potholing” will consist of drilling multiple 2-inch holes into the pavement to determine the existing materials underneath. The PWSA contractor anticipates each location will take approximately 2 hours. “Potholing” will occur in select locations within the following streets: Duncan Street, Carnegie Street, Holmes Street, Kent Way, Keystone Street, Poe Way, 52nd, 53rd, and 54th Streets.
The PWSA contractor is already mobilized on site and will be working Monday through Friday 7:00 am - 6:00 pm. Work is anticipated to be completed by June 5, 2015.
Residents in the affected areas should anticipate some noise and debris during working hours. The PWSA contractor will minimize inconvenience to residents to the best of their ability. There will be some intermittent parking restrictions lasting only a few hours. The contractor will have traffic, health, and safety controls in place, as required by the regulatory agencies. Each location will be repaired with temporary asphalt. Final restoration will be scheduled for a later date.
Please note there is another construction project in progress in the vicinity of Keystone and 53rd
Street that has no relation to this project or The PWSA.
PWSA appreciates your understanding during this construction project.
