PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - Construction is about to begin on a month’s long project that will disrupt a part of Smallman Street in the Strip.

Weekday workers and weekend shoppers take note. Work will start next week beneath Smallman Street between 16th and 21st Streets.

Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority Executive Director Robert Weimar tells the KDKA Radio Morning News the $9 million project will replace two water mains and a sewer line.

“Three separate pipes we’ll be replacing, a 36 inch water main, a 12 inch water main and then we’re rerouting the existing sewer pipes.”

Weimar adds one lane of traffic will be maintained in each direction but there will be no parking on Smallman Street in those blocks.

The work precedes renovation of the historic terminal building and will be completed by December.
