Environmental Services is designing a project to repair over 15,000 feet, or about 3 miles, of public sewers in the St. Johns and Cathedral Park neighborhoods. Many of the sewer pipes are about 80 years old and deteriorating due to age. This project will protect the public and the environment by reducing the possibility of sewage releases to homes, businesses and streets.
The St. Johns-Cathedral Park project requires sewer repairs in several active business areas in the neighborhood, including N Lombard and N Ivanhoe streets. The city will be reaching out to neighbors and businesses to better understand business operations and access needs during construction.
Construction is anticipated to begin in early 2018 and take about a year and a half to complete.
