Public Meeting Thursday on Four Mile Run Improvement Plans

PITTSBURGH, PA (June 19, 2019) The Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority (PWSA) and the City of Pittsburgh’s Department of Mobility and Infrastructure (DOMI) will hold a public meeting Thursday on the Four Mile Run (4MR) Stormwater Improvement Project and the Mon-Oakland Mobility Project. 

The purpose of the public meeting is to update attendees on the progress and current status of the projects and encourage input throughout. The meeting details are as follows:

DATE:    Thursday, June 20, 2019

TIME:    6:00 to 8:00 PM. Doors Open: 6:00 PM. Presentations: 6:30 to 7:00 PM. Q&A and Small Group Discussions: 7:00 to 8:00 PM

LOCATION:         Local 95 Union Hall (300 Saline St., Pittsburgh, PA 15207)

The 4MR Stormwater Improvement Project will capture and route the flow of stormwater through a naturalized surface channel that will generally follow the path of the historic streams that formed Four Mile Run from Panther Hollow Lake to the Monongahela River. This project also includes the restoration of recreational uses of Panther Hollow Lake. At the meeting, PWSA will discuss its quality assurance and its peer review process that ensures the project is implementable and effective. PWSA will also discuss anticipated project costs and funding sources as they relate to the different components of the design.

In conjunction with PWSA, DOMI is initiating the Preliminary Design Phase for the Mon-Oakland Mobility Project. The Mobility Project is part of the City of Pittsburgh’s efforts to create a publicly accessible and controlled mobility corridor that will connect the neighborhoods of Hazelwood, Greenfield, Four Mile Run and Oakland. The plan also includes a separate bike/ped trail to enable non-motorized transportation between these neighborhoods. The bike/ped trail includes improvements to the Junction Hollow Trail in Schenley Park. At the meeting, DOMI will provide a study phase recap and present design phase next steps.
