SECTION 25 – AREA 7 & 8

START: June 2021

COMPLETION: November 2021

$5.6M investment funded by the Water & Sewer Bond Fund

Work includes:

  • Water main replacement
  • Separating sanitary flow from storm water flow which includes new sanitary pipe installation on some streets
    • Separating these flows reduces the risk of basement back-ups due to surcharging public sewers during large rain events
  • Reconstruction of streets in concrete, including approaches

Traffic impacts:

  • Generally, roads are open during construction with minor delays
  • This neighborhood is challenging to maintain traffic because of so many dead-end roads; while work is occurring on your street, we ask residents to park on other streets during the work day so you may come and go freely

Other items of note:

  • Mail delivery and garbage collection should continue normally
  • When roads are prepared for concrete paving, residents will not have access to their streets for 2-3 weeks and will be directed to park on nearby streets; overnight parking enforcement will temporarily cease at these times; advance notice will be provided
  • Water service can be expected to be interrupted about 3 times during construction; advance notice will be provided; water service will always be re-established by the end of a work day, if contractors are gone and your water isn’t back on please call or email the project team
