Road construction crews are tentatively scheduled this Thursday, November 9 to clean and videotape a section of pipe which has been observed to have sagged since installation. The section of pipe is located just north of SW Northgate Avenue and south of Powers Court. This work will require a lane to be closed on SW Terwilliger Blvd, but there will be flaggers to get traffic through. This should only take about one day to do the work.
Depending on the outcome of the cleaning and investigation, Environmental Services will determine whether this section of pipe may need to be repaired in the future or if a long-term cleaning regimen will be sufficient to provide adequate sewer service.
