Dragoon Way Stormwater Improvements Project

In Construction Stormwater

In partnership with the City of Pittsburgh, we are planning a stormwater and roadway improvements project to address flooding issues at and around Dragoon Way in the Stanton Heights neighborhood.

Progress & Status

Construction Complete

Progress to-date includes: 

  • Installed sewer pipe, manholes in phase I of project.
  • Retention tank for Phase I zone has been delivered to site. 


Upcoming work:

  • Installation of inlets, manholes, and 15-inch sewer on Adelphia.


Construction phasing is as follows: 

  • Phase I will begin on the hillside behind Adelphia Street and in the public right-of-way on Adelphia Street. Work will last approximately four weeks.
  • Phase II will include work on Livingston Street. Work will last approximately six weeks.
  • Phase III will complete the project on Dragoon Way. Work will last approximately four weeks.
  • Phase IV will include restoration of the project area. Work will last approximately 2-3 weeks.

Work is weather dependent and subject to change.

To maintain jobsite safety for both workers and pedestrians, Adelphia Street, Livingston Street, and Dragoon Way will be closed to traffic 24/7 while the sewer and detention tanks are installed. Crews will work with residents on these blocks to access their homes during closure.


The project area is located in the A-41 sewershed, a significant contributor to combined sewer overflows (CSOs) into rivers in the Pittsburgh region. Therefore, stormwater detention and/or green infrastructure measures will be prioritized during design.

Project Components

  • Design and install infrastructure to help manage stormwater flows that are impacting private properties and the Allegheny River via CSOs
  • Prioritize stormwater detention and/or other green infrastructure systems where peak flows from the watershed can potentially be captured and managed
  • Design and install roadway improvements to enhance both road surface quality and drainage
