This work will bring work sites back to their original condition following any work PWSA performed. Many sites that were on hold during the cold fall and winter months can expect new asphalt, brick re-laying, sidewalk replacements, or landscaping work.
PWSA is committed to spending ratepayer dollars efficiently and has dedicated $7.5 million of its 2023 capital budget to complete restoration of these construction sites in batches. This funding will address approximately 600 locations throughout the service area.
Through PWSA work, residents receive the dual benefit of improved water and sewer services as well as new roadways and sidewalks.
PWSA's Operations team completes many water and sewer repairs throughout the service area every day. After repair work is complete, crews will temporarily restore the site and submit it to the Restoration Team. These sites are collected and mapped by internal teams to be addressed at a later date. With construction season now underway, asphalt, concrete, and landscaping crews will move through our service area addressing work by ward.
Due to repair work that occurs during winter months, some restoration sites sit in a state of temporary restoration. PWSA will work through the restoration backlog with the following criteria in mind:
- Age of location: oldest sites will be addressed first.
- Major intersections: high-traffic intersections will be prioritized to improve public safety.
- Primary roadways: roadways with the highest volume of traffic will be prioritized. These are defined as roads that carry major traffic movement between centers of population within the city or region.
