Wright-Pierce is in the process of finalizing contract documents for the construction of a relief sewer connecting Beaver Street to Lyman Street through the Beaver Street rotary.  The primary purpose of this relief sewer is to prevent the occurrence of surcharging of the sewer mains along Beaver Street and Valley View Road.  Construction of this relief sewer is anticipated to begin late Spring 2017, subject to weather conditions.  This project will include the resurfacing of Lyman Street, north of the bridge to the rotary.

Wright-Pierce has also begun the design phase of the Inflow and Infiltration (I/I) mitigation portion of the project.  This design phase will occur over the Fall and Winter of 2016 – 2017.  Design plans will be developed to make repairs to the City’s sanitary sewer system.  Construction activity is anticipated to begin Spring of 2017.
