New Sewer Main and Manhole Structures going in along Woods Creek Trail
Starting in early May, the Woods Creek Interceptor Improvement project will commence. The project consists of installing 1,623 Linear Feet of new 16-inch sewer main and 12 new manhole structures, nominally extending from the Lime Kiln Road Bridge to the confluence of Sarah’s Run and Woods Creek, and following the Wood’s Creek Tail corridor. The project is anticipated to be completed in six months. Woods Creek Trail closures are anticipated along the project corridor. The segments of the project under Lime Kiln Road and Jordan Street will be directionally drilled, as opposed to open trench methods, to minimize traffic impacts. The remainder of the project will be installed using open trench methods. Directional drill methodology was examined for the Wood’s Creek crossing, but inadequate pipe cover made this process unworkable. The city has applied for the appropriate stream crossing permits and the work will be performed by a combination of Aaron J. Conner General Contractor personnel and Public Works staff.
