Add Your Voice to the Discussion at the Joint Public Meeting About the Four Mile Run Area
Join the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority (PWSA) and the City’s Department of Mobility and Infrastructure (DOMI) to hear about the updates to the Four Mile Run area regarding two projects that could change the face of this area, including the future of the Junction Hollow Trail.
This joint public meeting will go over 1) PWSA’s Four Mile Run Stormwater Improvement Project, as well as 2) DOMI’s proposed Mon-Oakland Connector project. The Mon-Oakland Connector project is a potential shuttle service between Hazelwood and Oakland, using the existing Schenley Park right of way in Junction Hollow.
The projects will impact the Junction Hollow Trail, so this is a chance to provide input into the proposed future of the trail and how the valley could be remade into a more park-like setting. From 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, and we’d like to make sure that access is maintained in some form.
Most significant, though, is that the team is looking for input on how the potential shuttles will get through Junction Hollow, and how that will affect residents and existing trail users.
According to their website, “The purpose of the Design Phase is to further detail the final plan derived from the Mon-Oakland Mobility Study completed in Fall 2018 and further refined as part of PWSA’s ongoing 4MR Stormwater Improvement Project. To do so, the Design Phase will include a comprehensive public outreach program that will include ongoing public and stakeholder coordination.”
The Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority and the City of Pittsburgh’s Department of Mobility and Infrastructure invite you to attend and participate in a public meeting on the Four Mile Run Stormwater Improvement Project and the Mon-Oakland Mobility Project. This meeting will update attendees on the progress and current status of the projects and solicit feedback and stakeholder comment.
