Utility Work - Sanitary Sewer and Waterline replacement
Paving - Eastbound lanes

The contractor has begun mobilizing and you will start to see some activity. The first phase is scheduled to start December 5, 2016.
December 29, 2016: The contractor is continuing to replace the old clay sanitary sewer lines within the project area. While some of the old lines will have to be completely dug up and replaced, a portion of the sanitary sewer lines can be replaced through a method called pipe bursting. This is a good video that shows how this process works: Pipe Bursting. The sewer work will take about another month to complete.
