Environmental Services is nearing completion on the Woodlawn-King Sewer Repair Project. The project has repaired or replaced over 16,000 feet (over 3 miles) of public sewer pipes in your neighborhood that are on average 90 years old and in deteriorating condition. This work also includes repairing or adding over 6,000 feet of service laterals that connect houses and businesses from the curb to the public sewer in the street. This project will protect the public and the environment by reducing the possibility of sewage releases to homes, businesses and streets.

Remaining Work

Quality control inspections identified the need to repave portions of Killingworth Avenue between Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and 8th Avenue. This is the last outstanding item remaining for this project.

Due to the scope of repaving required, crews will work at night to minimize traffic backups on this heavily traveled road and to provide for a safe construction zone for the public and construction crew. Night paving is expected to take two to three days and is scheduled for the week May 27, 2019. Night paving will occur between 9:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m.

Please be aware that schedules are subject to change due to a variety of factors, such as conditions underground, weather, traffic impacts, and subcontractor and materials availability issues.
