Homewood Green Infrastructure

Homewood Green Infrastructure Overview

Allegheny County, PA

The Port Authority of Allegheny County (PAAC) selected GAI’s Community Solutions Group to design Homewood Green, PAAC’s first green infrastructure project, located along the East Busway and Finance Street in the Homewood neighborhood of Pittsburgh. The design team developed concepts showing alternative ways to collect the stormwater runoff from the busway and the adjacent street, showcasing PAAC’s commitment to water quality and best management practices. The design of the first phase includes a nearly 900-lf reuse bioswale along Finance Street, which will be planted with an assortment of water filtering plant life to allow for runoff to be naturally filtered and reduced before entering the City’s storm system. Additional streetscape and bank stabilization were included within this phase to provide an aesthetically pleasing design for the surrounding community. Final construction plans were developed for the green infrastructure project.
