PWSA Begins Rehabilitation Work on Rising Main in Highland Park! The press release can be accessed here.
Crews began construction on Rising Mains 3&4 as part of the Water Reliability Plan. They will rehabilitate the two transmission pipes connecting the Bruecken Pump Station to the Highland Reservoir system. Work has started this month and will be complete in October 2022.
The right hand lane of outgoing traffic on One Wild Place will remain closed until early February. Full restoration of the roadway will occur in the spring. Additionally, the right hand outbound lane on Washington Boulevard – between Allegheny Boulevard and the Highland Park Bridge exit – will be closed to traffic to allow for equipment to access the worksite. This closure will be in place until April 2022. As the project proceeds, crews will move out of the right-of-way and into the woods and onto zoo property. We will coordinate with the zoo as needed.
Project updates will be found on the webpage below.
