Update - 9/13/19

The Roache Road project is underway. Initial potholing was completed and has exposed some unforeseen utility conflicts which has delayed the start of trenching work for the new sewer project. The Contractor plans to begin trench layout and sawcutting next week. Impacts to traffic will be minimal. Trenching work is expected to begin the week of September 23rd. The Contractor will provide 48-hour notice to impacted residents prior to beginning this trenching work.

Potholing on Roache Road will begin on August 22, 2019 and trenching should begin at the beginning of September. The sewer replacement project will consist of the removal and replacement of 1,900 lineal feet of sewer in Roache Road. Some local traffic control will be in place.

The sewer will be replaced with 8" PVC pipe. The project includes the replacement of three manholes that serve this line, the installation of two new manholes to correct the spacing between existing manholes, the adjustment of the pipe slope for better flow, and also the re-connection of the sewer laterals serving each property on the line.
