Riverview Force Main Replacement Project

Environmental Services is planning a project on Highway 43 to replace an aging sewer main that carries wastewater from the Riverview Pump Station. The project will replace roughly 3,000 feet of failing sewer pipe along Highway 43 from the Riverview Pump Station south to SW Riverwood Road (see map). The pipe has experienced several failures in recent years, and this project will install a new pipe and reduce the potential for future leaks or breaks.

Project Schedule and Night Work

This project will take place largely during the night hours to avoid traffic conflicts with commuters as well as with other nearby public works projects. Crews will do some work during the daytime hours, but lane closures or restrictions will be limited. Drivers and residents should anticipate some delays during construction.

Work is expected to start in spring or summer 2015 and construction should take about six months. The project team will coordinate the construction schedule with other sewer and road projects in the area to minimize impacts on residents and commuters.

We will continue to be in contact as the project progresses.
