OVERVIEW:
The project involves the replacement of water mains, replacement or lining of sanitary mains, and enhancement of surface features including sidewalks and mid-block crossings. Please refer to the project drawing for more information.

SCOPE OF WORK:
The project involves the following stages of construction:
  • Replacement/rehabilitation of sanitary sewer and water main along 2nd Street between 6th Avenue and 4th Avenue.
  • Surface enhancements including upgraded mid-block crossings, sidewalks, planters and street furniture.
  • Planting of trees, shrubs and flowers in the planters. This work will be done the year following completion of construction.
SCHEDULE:

The infrastructure replacements and upgrades along the 400 block of 2 Street SE will be completed in 2016.


IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
A major goal of this project is to provide as little disturbance as possible to affected businesses and residences, and will therefore be divided into numerous “work zones”.
As each work zone is under construction:
  • Traffic detours will be in place in order to move traffic as efficiently as possible around construction.
  • Vehicle access and on-street parking within the work zone will be restricted.
  • Water and sewer service will be maintained to the fullest extent possible, however slight interruptions will be required in order to tie-in each service and the new mains. With the exception of unforeseen incidents, service interruptions will all be scheduled in advance, and of short duration.
