Traffic Detour will take place next week for Northbound Peck Street traffic for a few days.  See details below for next week’s anticipated work. Week 8 of construction is nearing completion and work continues to progress well on Sherman Boulevard.  Please remember that Sherman Boulevard is closed to thru traffic.  Please use side streets to get to your home or business to reduce traffic on Sherman as much as possible for the safety of the construction workers.  

Work completed this past week:

  • Removed and replaced a deep sanitary sewer manhole at Howden and Sherman
  • Replaced a water main valve between Peck and Sanford Streets
  • Installed a new water main valve and hydrant between Ray and Getty Streets
  • Installed a de-watering system just east of Peck Street to temporarily lower the groundwater table to perform some deep sanitary sewer main work between Peck and Maffett
  • Saw cut areas of road where removals were performed for an eventual clean edge of pavement removal and replacement
 

Work Anticipated the week of July 27:

  • No Work is anticipated for tomorrow, Saturday, July 25
  • Sanitary sewer repairs at Sherman, just east of Peck Street
    • This work is planned for Monday and Tuesday next week (weather permitting)
    • To keep the sewage flowing in the sewer, bypass pumps need to be installed from an upstream manhole in the intersection of Peck so that sewage does not back up in the system while the Contractor performs this work
    • Starting Monday morning, Northbound Peck Street will be detoured to Sanford between Manahan and Hume Streets.  Southbound Peck Street traffic will remain.
    • If all goes well, the work should be completed by the end of the day Tuesday and northbound Peck Street traffic will be restored on Wednesday, July 29, 2020
  • Water main work on Sherman between 6th and 7th Streets
  • Clean up of pavement and sidewalk ramp removals and preparation for concrete restoration work to begin in early August
  If all goes well, this should complete the underground utility work on this project  

Work Anticipated the week of August 3:

  • Preparing for pavement replacement
  • Potentially some concrete work to begin replacing sidewalk ramps, curb and gutter and road restoration in the middle of the road intersections where underground work took place.
  • The entire road depth is not being replaced, and for best performance, it is best to match the existing concrete under the asphalt where utility work was performed prior to milling and resurfacing the remainder of the road surface.
