Project Overview

What is the scope of the project?

The project consists of the total reconstruction of Kimball Street, and the majority of Forest Avenue, including drainage, sewer, water, curbing, and sidewalk improvements.  The project will replace undersized pre-1931 unlined cast iron water pipes, undersized drainage pipes, and old deteriorated sewer lines showing high infiltration.  The project will also detect and eliminate illicit discharges including sump pumps connected to the sanitary sewer system.  The project is currently in the preliminary engineering phase, with final plans due in August 2022, at which time construction bidding will begin in January 2023.

How long is this going to take?

The project construction is expected to begin in the Summer of 2023 and will continue through the Spring of 2024, with a likely winter shutdown.  Please note that this schedule is dependent upon securing all required permits in a timely manner.
