Sewer Line Extension Project Update

Sewer pipe installation was recently completed on Arlington Street and South 3rd Street, leaving only street surface restoration remaining. Paving activities will result in the closure of Arlington Street and South 3rd Street next week between South 2nd Street, South 1st Street, and Naches Avenue. The closure duration is from Monday, May 5th through Tuesday, May 6th. Paving activities will move to the north/south alley between South 1st Street and South 6th Street resulting in closure of the alley, from Wednesday, May 7th to Thursday, May 15th. Paving activities will occur on Nob Hill Boulevard resulting in nighttime closures, from Monday, May 12th through Tuesday, May 13th.

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 the night of Monday, May 5th and continue through Thursday night, May 8th. On Wednesday night, May 7th, Nob Hill Boulevard will be closed between South 1st Street and South 6th Street. On the nights of Monday, May 5th and Thursday, May 8th, Arlington Street will be closed between South 1st Street and Naches Avenue. 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.

Beginning the week of Monday, May 12th, the industrial waste sewer line extension project will result in a one-lane closure of North 1st Avenue halfway between Quince Street and Poplar Street. The closure duration is anticipated to be from Monday, May 12th through Thursday, May 15th. Following pipe installation, concrete surface restoration will occur on North 1st Avenue.

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

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

As always, the schedule for these types of projects 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.
