Environmental Services is designing a sewer replacement project on NW Raleigh and NW Quimby streets between NW 21st and 22nd avenues. The project will add needed capacity to the combined sewer system, help reduce the potential for basement backups, and protect water quality and the environment.
This project will replace and upsize the public sewer main in the street and repair the laterals that connect properties to the sewer. Crews will also replace stormwater inlets and inlet pipes that connect to the combined sewer system.
You may have seen crews in the area locating and moving existing utility lines and drawing markings on the streets. This will ensure that the contractor can complete the project without interruption of other utilities and services. Survey crews will be on site again before construction begins.
Environmental Services currently plans to start construction in mid-2015. The project will take three to four months to complete. We will continue to be in touch as the project evolves.
Construction will affect traffic and there will likely be some detours around the work area. The city will design a traffic control plan that minimizes impacts to the neighborhood and ensures a safe work zone for construction crews and the public.
Thank you for your cooperation during this important project. Please let us know if you have questions or concerns, such as business operations, medical issues or deliveries; we will be happy to work with you.
