The Maryland Avenue Stormwater Improvement Project will use cost-effective green stormwater solutions throughout Shadyside to reduce runoff from entering the combined sewer system.
Progress & Status
These stormwater solutions will be constructed within the public right of way (public streets and sidewalks). This project will help to reduce the ongoing issues of basement backups, neighborhood flooding, and combined sewer overflows that commonly occur during heavy rains
The project goals are to:
- Capture and store stormwater runoff before it reaches our overwhelmed combined sewer system
- Reduce combined sewer overflows in the A-22 sewershed
- Reduce basement backups and neighborhood flooding
- This project is partially funded by ALCOSAN’s GROW grant program.
Locations & Schedule
The project area is located near Kentucky Avenue, South Negley Avenue and Summerlea Street, Alder Street, and South Highland Avenue. The first phase of the project includes Maryland Avenue, Kentucky Avenue, College Street, and Walnut Street.
Start Date: Phase One Construction: Expected in Spring 2021
Completion Date: Phase One Construction: Expected in Fall 2021
