Street Improvements

Updates 2022 Glenwood Street and Utility Improvement Project

August 10, 2022

 

New sanitary sewer main was installed through the 2nd Street and 2nd Avenue intersection last week. Installation of storm sewer pipe continued north to 1st Avenue, and storm manholes and catch basins were installed at the 2nd Street and 2nd Avenue intersection.

 

Water mains and new sanitary sewer will be installed this week at the 2nd Street and 1st Avenue intersection. Installation of storm sewer and water and sanitary sewer mains will continue at the north end of the project.

 

The remainder of the underground work will be completed next week, and sub-cutting (replacing old dirt with new dirt to reshape the road) will begin. Work will also begin on the two remaining   portions of the project (15th Street SE and the 1st Avenue SE parking lot).

 Delete either this two or the two before “remaining.” Not sure which sounds better.

A new watermain and fire hydrant were installed this past week at the 2nd Street and 2nd Avenue intersection. Replacement of existing storm sewer began near 3rd Avenue moving north on 2nd Avenue.

Storm sewer and sanitary sewer replacement will continue this week at the 2nd Street and 2nd Avenue intersection.

Next week’s work will include the replacement of underground water and sewer mains at the 2nd Street and 1st Avenue intersection and storm sewer will be finished on the north end of the project.

The contractor is also planning to being work on the 1st Avenue parking lot and 15th Street SE next week.

Work continued this past week on the replacement of water and sewer mains at the 2nd Street and 2nd Avenue intersection and should be finished next week.

Underground storm sewer work will begin next week between 3rd Avenue and 2nd Avenue and the intersection of 2nd Street and 2nd Avenue.

Short interruptions in water service will occur during work on the watermain. Properties that will experience an outage have been notified. The contractor will also notify those property owners again at the time of the outage and when the water service is turned back on.

As a reminder, there will be limited street access in the areas where the contractor is digging.

Existing Watermain

July 20, 2022

 

This past week removal of blacktop, curb and gutter, and sidewalk on 2nd Avenue SE took place from Main Street to 3rd Avenue. Removals are necessary to access the underlying utilities and to establish a level and sturdy base for new aggregate and pavement which increases the lifetime of the pavement. 

 

Replacement of watermain and sewer main (utilities) will begin next week. Connections will take place at both the 2nd Street and 1st Avenue intersection and the 2nd Street and 2nd Avenue Intersection. Replacing utilities reduces the risk of utility failures including water outages and sewage line clogs which lead to costly repairs and digging into the new roadway. While installing the utilities there will be limited street access in the areas where the contractor is digging.
