Contractors installed 27 linear feet of 18" reinforced concrete pipe and set the catch basin. They also tied in the existing 12" pipe to the catch basin. They will continue to lay more pipe through next week, and no changes will be made to the current road closures.

This week, contractors installed storm drains, began paving and pretested the installed water line section. Next week they will finish paving the Gatewood and Elm Street intersection as well as continuing to lay water, storm and sewer lines. The change in traffic pattern (as seen above) will occur some time next week, as work progresses.

In the past week, crews were able to work on storm sewer runs and the 6" water service before preparing for winter weather and cleaning the site after the snowfall. Next week they will finish the storm sewer runs and install storm drain and sewer through Church Avenue toward English Road. They will also install a water line to English Road. The Church Street intersection has been closed.
