Woodlawn-King Alleys

Updated December 17, 2018 

Environmental Services is nearing completion on the Woodlawn-King Sewer Repair Project to repair or replace over 15,000 feet (almost 3 miles) of sewer pipes that are on average 90 years old and in deteriorating condition. This work will include repairing or adding over 2,400 feet of service laterals that connect houses and businesses from the curb to the public sewer in the street/alley. Taking these actions now will help protect the public and our environment by reducing the possibility of costly breaks, leaks, blockages, and sewage releases to homes, businesses, and streets.

Remaining Work Schedule

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.

Through February 2019, crews will be returning to several previous work locations to complete miscellaneous outstanding items.

  • Crews will be completing finish work in multiple locations throughout the project area such as spot paving, manhole work, concrete work, and cleaning.

  • Traffic delays on are expected to be minor, but some tasks may require closing the road to through access. Local access for those living and conducting business on the street will be maintained.
