Lots of progress has been made with the Rosedale Runoff Reduction Project (RRRP) in recent weeks. To start, we have updated our website so please check it out at rosedalerain.com.  We will continue to add information to this site as projects move forward. This blog area will be used to provide regular updates on design, construction, outreach, and anything else happening on the project.

In other exciting news, both the Oakwood-Batavia and Crescent Early Childhood Center sites are under construction!

On June 27th, PJ Dick broke ground on the Oakwood & Batavia Streets intersection green stormwater infrastructure (GSI) project. Currently Batavia Street is fenced off to traffic between Oakwood Street and Tyson Alley. The portion of Oakwood Street where the installation will be is also fenced off.  The excavation on Oakwood and bending around to southern side of Batavia has been completed. Next up is to excavate the north side of Batavia. The project is expected to be complete by August 15th.

On July 14th, JASE Construction Services broke ground at Crescent ECC on the first phase of the project, a series of five rain gardens with R-Tanks® along the front of the campus.  The second phase, the tree trench along Tokay Street which delivers the runoff to the rain gardens, is still under review by the City of Pittsburgh Department of Public Works (DPW). JASE is currently unearthing pipes from the early turn of the century to connect the project to as an overflow.  Work on excavation of rain gardens 1 & 2 are also underway near the corner of Tokay and Bennett Streets. The project is expected to be complete by August 15th.
