PWSA WILL INSTALL A NEW 20-INCH WATER MAIN ON FORBES AVENUE IN OAKLAND
The Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority (PWSA) will continue repairs on Forbes Avenue at Morewood Street due to a 20-inch water main break. A geotechnical engineer assessed the safety and integrity of the road after the break. It was determined installing a new 20-inch water main would be the best solution. PWSA is coordinating repair efforts with PennDOT and the Department of Public Works. We appreciate the public’s patience as this issue gets resolved in the safest and most efficient manner possible.
The PWSA contractor will be working 24/7 through Friday, March 18, 2016, at 4:00 p.m.
Forbes Avenue (South Craig Street – Morewood Avenue) will remain closed to all traffic until repairs are completed. PWSA does not anticipate any impact to water service.
