Environmental Services has completed design on a project to extend the public sewer system in SW Meade Street between SW 1st and SW 2nd Avenues. The project will construct approximately 100 feet of mainline sewer pipe and four service laterals, which will connect private properties to the new public sewer. This project will resolve nonconforming sewer connections for four properties.
Construction is expected to begin the week of June 10 and continue through July 2019. General work hours will be from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, and Saturday if needed. The schedule may change due to a variety of factors, including weather, conditions underground, availability of materials and labor, and unforeseen events. This project is expected to last for approximately four to six weeks to complete. Below is an outline of the schedule.
Week of June 24
Week of July 8
Week of July 15
Crews will dig a trench in the street to install the pipes. Crews will also construct four sewer service laterals. After sewer construction, crews will backfill the trenches and apply a temporary asphalt patch. After all work has passed inspection, crews will return to restore the patched trenches with a fresh new asphalt surface.
Before the major pipe work begins, crews will be in the area preparing for construction. Activities may include locating and marking utilities, trimming trees and installing tree protection, staging equipment and materials, and setting up parking and traffic controls.
The City’s Office of Procurement Services is currently reviewing this project and its construction contract options. When Procurement Services completes their review, Environmental Services will notify the public of the construction schedule. You can expect the following impacts during construction:
