Grant Park Sewer Repair Project Construction Email Update: November 17, 2014


The Grant Park Sewer Repair Project will replace or repair about 11,500 feet of public sewer pipes that are between 89 and 104 years old and failing due to age. The project will increase sewer capacity and reduce the risks of street flooding and sewage releases to homes, businesses and streets. Construction should be completed by March 2015.


Current Construction Activities
The city’s contractor will soon add a second construction crew to work on sewer and lateral pipe repairs in the area. Please be aware that construction schedules are subject to change due to conditions underground, weather, traffic, subcontractor schedules and availability of materials. As the contractor uses different equipment or specialized crews at each site, you will notice several work phases.


Sewer repairs underway or about to start:

Holiday schedule:

Since work started in June, one business on NE Broadway experienced a sewer backup. The city determined that roots in the property’s private sewer line caused the backup. Many of our houses have old pipes that could be affected by nearby construction like digging, so stay aware.
