On the heels of rampant flooding across the city this weekend, the city is hosting a meeting later this week to discuss plans to fix a broken sewer pipeline in southern Old Town.
Tomorrow (Wednesday) the city is planning to host a meeting in the Lee Center (1108 Jefferson Street) from 7-9 p.m. to discuss the upcoming sewer pipe replacement. According to the city website, inspection of the sewer found that the pipe had been damaged and was causing residential sewer backups in the nearby area.
The repairs will involve construction of a new pipe, manholes, and other materials.
“The City has contracted Anchor Construction Corporation to install new 10-inch sanitary sewer pipes, replacing the existing 8-inch sanitary sewer line that runs along the City right-of-way on the north side of Franklin Street, east of South Patrick Street,” the city said in a press release. “The project will relocate 130 linear feet of sanitary sewer and install four manholes towards the center of the street to facilitate the long-term maintenance, as well as reconnect all existing laterals and restore the existing roadway surface.”
Construction is scheduled to begin starting Monday, Aug. 30, and the project is estimated to take approximately six months.
“Crews are permitted to work Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m. and Saturdays, 9 a.m.-6 p.m.” the city said in the relese. “The project will require the temporary closure of the sidewalk on the north side of Franklin Street and staggered parking restrictions. The flow of traffic, plus access to all businesses, driveways, and parking lots, will be maintained by flaggers during construction hours. Sanitary sewer service will be maintained using a bypass system.”
