Strip District is Stripping its Water and Sewer Lines

The Strip District of Pittsburgh is getting a makeover – underground that is. Beginning in late April, more than 3,600 feet of water lines beneath Smallman Street in the area of 16th to 21st streets and more than 4,000 feet of sewer lines will be replaced and rehabbed resulting in a $9 million effort to enhance the underground aging infrastructure in the Steel City.

The sewer line rehabilitation means retiring the current combined system and separating flow into district channels for storm runoff and sanitary sewage. Officials are trying to curb combined sewer systems, which can spill raw sewage into waterways during major rainfalls.

The infrastructure project should be complete by December 2018. Throughout the project, there will be traffic and parking restrictions.
