The final push towards a flood-prepared neighborhood and trail
On Wednesday, November 14th, the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority (PWSA) and the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy (PPC) will be hosting a discussion and workshop about their Four Mile Run Stormwater Improvement Project. This is the follow up to a previous series of meetings on this important rainwater management project.
The project is expected to impact the Junction Hollow Trail, so this is a chance to provide input into what you’d like to see in the future trail. According to previous meetings, project managers were taking input on trail surface, lighting, design, and feasibility of connecting to Panther Hollow Lake. Additionally, the trail will be affected during construction.
This is a chance to discuss with the planners what you’d like to see in the stormwater project as well as in the rebuilt trail. As construction will impact the existing trail, it’s also an opportunity to make sure that they plan for a viable solution for getting through Junction Hollow while work is being done.
From the organizers:
Attendees will have the opportunity to visit individual stations focusing on a specific part of the project. At each station you can learn about the design concept and its constraints, ask questions, and provide input and ideas that will help to determine the overall design of the project. The stations will focus on the overall watershed expansion, Panther Hollow Lake, the streams and historic bridges throughout Schenley Park, the inclusion of public art, and mobility.
