Sewer Line Replacement Requires Road Closures and Some Inconvenience
K-2 sewer rehabilitation project is under construction. The major scope of work involves installing sewer cleanouts at the property line of about 850 addresses mostly within the Linda Vista area.
This works involves excavating a hole to access the existing sewer line, cutting into the line, lining the existing lateral with a cured in place pipe (pipe within a pipe) and then installing a sewer cleanout at the property line for future City maintenance purposes. The contractor, SC Valley Construction, has started this major scope of work within Ulric Street and the surrounding cul-de-sacs as of July 14, 2014 and work is planned through September 2015.
There will be some inconvenience to residents while work is taking place within their streets such as parking issues, heavy equipment, traffic control, excavations, dirt piles, etc. The contractor may be working on Dunlop Street around September or October period. See more info on this fact sheet on the project, and a map of the neighborhoods affected.
