Miller Avenue Streetscape Project Update: August 30 , 2017

What happened last week: 
The contractor marked the layout for the striping of the road and continued to raised the sewer system manholes, as is standard practice in a street paving project. 

What is happening this week:
Work crews plan to finish raising the sewer system manholes up to the level of the newly paved roadway. The contractor is also set to finish striping the road. Work crews are installing bike racks on Miller Avenue this week and next week, as well as performing the remaining miscellaneous clean-up throughout the site.

What to expect in the next few weeks:
The contractor will work on the landscape irrigation system in anticipation of upcoming planting. The contractor will install the pedestrian bridge connecting to the County pathway in the Marsh area. Work crews will install check valves and two tide gates in the Marsh area. During the week of September 5, the contractor will clean the sewer service lines, which will require temporary lane shifts around work in manholes. Cleaning the Miller Avenue sewer lines is in preparation of the cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) work, which is a method used to repair sewer system pipes. This work will take place at night, as established in the contract, when sewer flow rates are reduced and is anticipated to begin in mid-September. Additional details will follow in the upcoming weeks.

Please Note: There will be parking restrictions and lane shifts, to allow for final paving treatments, striping and other miscellaneous items.
