Installation of the 36-inch gravity main for the Eagle Mountain Sewer Diversion project is scheduled to begin this week.

Part 2 is in the Worth Heights area. Part 1 is in the Rosemont area. Part 2 includes replacing sewer lines, that date back to 1926, in six alleyways. The contractor will use both open cut and pipe bursting on this part of the project.

Sycamore Creek Wastewater Improvements (Active through Oct. 8, 2019)
More than 85 percent of the project is finished. A new 66-inch relief sewer main extends from an existing 72-inch sewer line in Gateway Park to south of Lancaster and in to the UPRR right-of-way. The main was installed in Windham, parallel to an existing sewer main. All sewer pipe is installed. Curbs, gutters and valley gutters are being restored and driveways are being repaired. A water line on Lancaster Avenue was relocated.

The contractor is at the Beach Street crossing building a tunnel for the new 54-inch diameter gravity sewer main. The wastewater main runs through Fossil Creek Golf Course. It starts at Beach Street and moves northwesterly to Western Center Boulevard. Installing the sewer main will take approximately one year. Expect lane closures on Beach Street and Western Center Boulevard but there will be no full road closures or overnight closures.

Upper Clear Fork Wastewater Improvements (Active through Nov. 4, 2019)
Construction will be visible soon on the Upper Clear Fork Wastewater Improvement project. The first three segments are in Trinity Park so the contractor is working with an arborist to make way for construction. This part is on the north side of the Clear Fork of the Trinity River, starting southwest of 7th Street then crossing I-30 to University Drive. Sewer mains ranging from 48-inches to 54-inches are being replaced.

Westcliff and South Hills Water and Wastewater Improvements (Active through Sept. 29, 2019)
New sewer lines are installed on West Beddell Street from Wabash Avenue to Rodgers Avenue and Rodgers from West Beddell to Wabash. Temporary pavement is in place until the overlay can be completed. The contractor is working on West Gambrell Street at Rodgers. The sewer on West Gambrell has been replaced with new pipe and manholes. The next step is to replace the sewer line on West Boyce Avenue between Wabash and Cherokee Trail.
