Downtown Utility Line Replacement

DESCRIPTION

PROJECT ID: W 29.0
ESTIMATED COST: $300,000
ACTUAL COST: TBD
  • Installs new ductile iron and polyvinyl chloride water and sewer main lines along the alley between Main Street and Gladys Ave. from N. 1st Street to N. 3rd Street.
  • Included as part of City Hall project to save cost during paving

WHY IT’S NEEDED

The water and sewer lines along the alleyway are among the oldest lines in the city, likely installed in the early to mid-1900s. These lines are long past their design life. Existing sewer lines are unreinforced concrete and vitrified clay pipe and water lines are cast iron pipe, which does not meet current standards.

In Progress
