We’re replacing existing 1930s era water mains near and within the American Tobacco District to improve service delivery. Approximately 10,000 feet of waterlines within the American Tobacco vicinity area will be replaced, and approximately 4,600 feet of new transmission main will be installed.
- Phase 1 includes water and sewer improvements generally west of Blackwell Street. Phase 2 will include water and sewer improvements generally east of and including Blackwell Street. Construction will begin in September 2020 and is anticipated to last about 1.5 years. This will bring changes in traffic patterns, detours, and temporary limited access to properties in the project area.
This work will improve water service throughout the project area and City. Additionally, approximately 7,500 feet of existing gravity sewer pipes will be rehabilitated with a cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) liner. The project is estimated to cost approximately $9.5 million and will be paid for by previously authorized capital improvement program (CIP) funds. The project’s design phase is complete, with construction planned to begin September 2021. Construction is anticipated to last approximately 1.5 years.
