one and a half miles, of public sewers in the Portsmouth and University Park neighborhoods. Many of the existing sewer pipes were 80 years old and in deteriorating condition. This project is one of many that will protect the public and the environment by reducing the possibility of sewage releases to homes, businesses, and streets.
The contractor has almost completed all sewer repairs but will now be working in various areas all over the project area finishing minor items left on their list. Crews will be performing minor repairs on manholes, driveway entries, sidewalks, and curbs. This type of work usually takes up to four hours to complete.
Work schedules may fluctuate due to weather, conditions underground, traffic impacts, subcontractor schedules, and availability of materials.
Typical work hours are 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, but the contractor may schedule work during the same hours on Saturdays.
