Environmental Services is designing a project in the Richmond and South Tabor neighborhoods, plus a block in Creston-Kenilworth, to repair or replace about 10,300 feet, or 2 miles, of public sewer pipes that are on average 90 years old and deteriorating due to age. The project includes replacing manholes, storm drains sewer service branches that connect homes and businesses to the public sewer in the street to the curb.
Together these improvements will increase public sewer capacity, protect public health, property and the environment, and reduce the risks of street flooding and sewage releases to homes, businesses and streets.
Construction is anticipated to begin July 2017 and take a year to complete.
The map indicates locations where work will occur, and the construction method that will be employed. You can learn more about construction methods HERE.
Environmental Services has been granted a noise variance to allow open trench work and cured-in-place pipe lining at locations indicated on the maps below. A variance is required when work occurs outside normal construction hours, 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday. This includes work after 6:00 p.m. and before 7:00 a.m., and all hours on Sunday.
Work will take place for up to 21 days on SE Cesar Chavez Blvd between Brooklyn and Powell, for one night on SE Franklin between SE 54th and 55th avenues, and two nights and a Sunday at SE Division Street at 60th Avenue.
