Project Status as of July 2022

Construction crews are installing the 16-inch and 8-inch force main along the north side of Grissom Rd. The new 16-inch force main will tie into the existing 16-inch force main south of Grissom Rd. It will travel north to the new Right-of-Way and then parallel the Right-of-Way to the lift station. The new 8-inch force main will continue to parallel the Right-of-Way to the lift station. Crews will then focus on finishing the installation of the storm sewer system. They are anticipating to start paving from the southwest moving northeast.
