Brook Avenue Sewer Main Replacement Project
Project Budget: $811,539
Completion Date: June 2013

The project is set to start up again on May 29th and should take three to four weeks to complete.  We are currently working with the County to get a road closure approved for safety reasons during construction.  The contractor is planning to open cut the final portion of line due to the failure with the pipe bursting last season.  We have also approached the County with the potential of working nights as some interest for night work was expressed by the contractor.  This would help with the road closure and the businesses on the street but may cause some complications with the removal of the material from the site.   Percent Complete: 100% (Design), 90% (Construction).
