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
The PWSA project team hosted a virtual community meeting for residents within the project area. You can view the presentation here.
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.
- 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
Locations & Schedule
Stanton Heights neighborhood
Start Date: Design started Spring 2022. Construction expected to start Spring 2024.
