Trunk Highway 3 East Frontage Road Sanitary Sewer Project
This summer the City will be constructing a new sanitary sewer line under the east frontage road of TH-3 between Oak Street and Spruce Street. The project is being done to replace an old clay tile line that crosses under TH-3. The existing line is shallow, and has had several repairs done on it in the past.
The project will be fairly short in duration. It will begin after school is out, and will be substantially complete prior to school starting in the fall. The contractor will have 30 days to complete the majority of the work on the project. In 2014, we will come back in and apply the top layer of asphalt. We delay this a year to allow for any potential settlement to occur prior to the top layer of asphalt being applied. Doing this allows the settlement to be repaired, if necessary, without having to patch the top layer of asphalt.
The project will require the closing of Spruce Street for a short period of time so that the new line can be connected into the manhole in the middle of Spruce Street. While Spruce Street is closed, traffic in East Farmington should use Elm Street or Maple Street to access the area. It may also be necessary to temporarily shut off water in the area. If this is necessary, residents affected will be notified prior to any shut off.
