Sewer Line Extension Project Update

A project to extend an industrial waste sewer line will result in the closure of Arlington Street next week between South 3rd Street and South Naches Avenue. The closure begins on Monday, April 21th and will continue until Friday, April 25th. Following completion of the Arlington Street work, activity will shift to South 3rd Street resulting in the closure of South 3rd Street between Arlington Street and the Noel Corporation entrance.

As part of the industrial waste sewer extension project, a domestic sanitary sewer main is also being rehabilitated between Ranch Rite Road and Arlington Street. Work is anticipated to begin on Wednesday, April 23rd and continue through Wednesday, April 30th. Construction activities may temporarily affect homeowners and businesses adjacent to the project area. Property owners will be notified a minimum of 24 hours prior to any service disruption.

During the project, traffic delays in the areas are likely to occur. Drivers should use alternate routes if possible until the project is completed.

Access to homes and businesses in the project area will be impacted, but will be maintained when possible. Emergency vehicles will be allowed through the project area if necessary.

As always, the schedule for this type of project is subject to change daily dependent on weather, equipment failure, and emergencies.

P.O.W. Contracting, Inc., a Pasco-based firm, is serving as the primary contractor on the industrial waste sewer extension project.
