Mile-per-year project

March 1, 2016
Beginning the week of March 21, the City will start its next mile-per-year project to replace aging water and sanitary sewer mains and alley pavement.

Project work will be handled in four phases.  Weather permitting, all work will be completed by March 2017.
  
1st Phase - Involves the 4200-4300 blocks of the Normandy/San Carlos alley and is expected to last four to five months.
 
2nd Phase - Crews will begin working in the 4400-4500 block of the Stanhope/ Shenandoah alley.  This work should also take about four months.

3rd Phase - Crews will proceed to the alley serving the 4200-4300 blocks of McFarlin/Larchmont.  This portion of the project will last about four months.
 
4th Phase - Crews will return to the 4200-4300 blocks of Normandy to install a water line in the street that will service a fire hydrant.  This work will improve fire- fighting capabilities for the neighborhood.  Installation of the water main is anticipated to take five weeks.
 
Alleys blocked to traffic

This project will result in some inconvenience for residents who live nearby.  During replacement of the utilities in the alleys, alley access will be completely restricted.  Residents will be notified in advance of closures and receive other location specific information.  The City will also use social media to keep the community up-to-date on the project’s progress.

This project continues the City’s mile-per-year program that began in 1992.  The effort sets aside money for the replacement of roughly a mile of water and sewer pipes each year. The alleys identified in this project were selected because of repeated water main breaks and deteriorated sewer mains.

This project, approved by the City Council last November, has a total budget of $2.2 million to include design, construction testing, and contingencies.
