Progress Report

This week Schippers continued working on setting up, testing, and connecting the temporary water main (black pipe above ground) on Bonneville Dr. and Bonanza Dr. between 5 Mile Rd. and Brisam St. They have begun switching water services over from the existing water main to the temporary water main and plan to have all of the services switched over by middle of next week. Schippers and their bore and jack subcontractor, Marksman Contracting, worked on setting up access pits along Plainfield Avenue to facilitate the water main lining and bore and jack construction under Plainfield Avenue.

Next week Fer-Pal Construction will be placing the cured-in-place pipe liner in the existing water main along Plainfield Avenue. Marksman Contracting will be installing 30-inch diameter steel casing across Plainfield Avenue so that new water main can be installed across Plainfield Avenue without interruption to traffic. Schippers will be starting water main construction near 5 Mile Road and Bonanza Drive middle to the end of next week.

Please contact a project representative if you have questions or concerns.
