Roadway Improvements

   

    This year, seven streets will be paved including: Woodlawn Ave., Prospect Ave., Newmeyer St., Delaware Ave. Extension, Smokeywood Dr. and Westmoreland Ave. from Lacrosse St. to Lehigh St. As part of the project Lacrosse St. from Edgewood Ave. to Westmoreland Ave. will be completely reconstructed.This reconstruction will include removing all existing bricks and cobblestones, removing approximately 12 inches of sub-base below the bricks and cobblestones, replacing the two storm sewer lines under the road with one new larger line, replacing and installing new storm inlets, installing ADA compliant handicapped curb cuts at each intersection and paving the entire road.
    In preparation for the paving, Peoples Gas is replacing their gas line on Lacrosse Street and Delaware Avenue Extension. The Wilkinsburg Penn Joint Water Authority is also replacing their water line on Delaware Avenue Extension. The entire paving project is expected to be completed by mid-June. Please pardon the dust as our roads are rehabilitated!

Protect our Rivers and Streams

Did you know that anything that goes into a catch basin or storm inlet on the street eventually ends up in a stream or river?  You can help protect our water resources by reporting any activity that could cause pollution of our waterways.  If you see someone dumping anything into a storm inlet or even just dumping something on the street such as oil or auto fluids, litter, paint, grass clippings, hazardous waste or cleaning fluids, you can report this to the borough office at 412-271-7101. Please get as much information as possible including a photo, the location and time and other pertinent information.  Together we can all protect water, our most valuable resource.
