Construction will begin March 2017.

Over the next monWoodlawn-King Alleys map showing location of workths you may see crews locating utilities, surveying, inspecting sewer pipes and manholes, tree trimming, installing erosion controls, and mobilizing equipment and materials. These activities occur over time, rather than all at once.

For more information on these activities you can visit our preconstruction page.

Night Work

This project has been granted a noise permit for work during the night at two locations within the project boundaries. This permit allows crews to work after 6:00 p.m. and before 7:00 a.m.

What to Expect During Construction

  • Noise, Vibration, and Dust: Construction creates noise, vibration and dust and may disrupt normal neighborhood activity. 
  • Traffic Delays: You should expect traffic delays in and near the work area. Please observe traffic control signs and follow the directions of flaggers.
  • Driveway Access: Local access to your property will be maintained, but construction may impact normal use of your driveway or entrance to your business.
  • Parking Restrictions: On‐street parking will be restricted in and near the work zones to create a safe work environment and to stage equipment and materials.
  • Equipment Storage: Some equipment and materials may be stored on your street or nearby streets overnight.
  • Maintained Service: Sewer, water and other utilities will remain in service during construction.

Construction Methods

Sewer pipe repair or replacement will be completed using a combination of open trench and trenchless construction methods. To see photos and learn more about the construction methods indicated on the map, go to
