City adds more streets to the 2015 paving program

 


The City of Pittsburgh Department of Public Works (DPW) has added 18 projects added to this year’s paving program.

The additional projects are in neighborhoods throughout the city, including Arlington, Beechview, Brookline, Downtown, East Hills, Elliott, Greenfield, Highland Park, Homewood, Mount Washington, Shadyside, Spring Hill, Stanton Heights, and Summer Hill.

In South Pittsburgh this week, crews will be paving Filter Street, from Arlington Avenue to Charcott St. on August 6 and Arriba Way from Custer Avenue to the dead end on August 6.

The nearly three miles of new projects, worth approximately $700,000, will be completed within the originally allocated paving budget for 2015. Paving costs for projects completed to date are lower than budgeted costs for these projects, freeing up funding that can be used for new projects. No additional funding is required.

The total budget allocated for the 2015 Paving Program is $12,250,000. The budget breakdown includes $12,000,000 in City Capital Budget funding and $250,000 of Allegheny Regional Asset District (ARAD) funds.

During the 2015 Paving Program the Department of Public Works has focused on increasing coordination with local utilities. To date, cooperation with Peoples Natural Gas on over 25 projects around the city has ensured that paving projects are coordinated with planned utility infrastructure work, resulting in curb-to-curb restoration of impacted streets.
