General Information:

The 35th Street Sanitary Improvement project will rehabilitate the sanitary sewer main in 35th Street. The project area includes 35th Street from Chestnut Place (west boundary) to Dexter Street (east boundary). See specific locations above.

The purpose of the project is to improve the sanitary sewer main which is in need of repair. To minimize impacts to the area, the contractor will install a liner into the sewer main rather than having to excavate the street, ensuring a much less intrusive, costly and time-consuming rehabilitation method.

Project Location:

35th Street from Chestnut Place. to Downing Street, continuing on E. 35th Street from Downing to Humbolt Street, then continuing on from N. Steele Street to N. Dexter Street.

Project Duration:

Construction begins summer 2020. Beginning in May, crews will begin work by setting up bypass pumping lines. These lines are necessary to divert the sewer flows so the work may be completed. Advance notice will be provided to adjacent residents and business owners prior to work commencing.

The project will take approximately 5 months to complete.

As the work progresses, sections of 35th will be closed to accommodate the work. Detailed road closure information will be published in weekly updates that will be sent out via email. Access to residences and businesses will be maintained.
