Project Update - September 20, 2018
To date, construction of the storm sewer replacement within the Beisner Road right-of-way between the Clover Hill Condominiums and the Cheltenham Road homes has progressed accordingly to the anticipated schedule. We are pleased to announce that the new 54" concrete storm sewer pipe has been installed and is now functioning.
During the early phase of construction, an unknown fiber optic utility cable was discovered along the existing sewer alignment. In effort to ensure the project continued to move forward without interruption, the Village worked with the utility company to relocate the cable prior to the removal of the existing sewer. The relocation of the AT&T fiber optic cable has unfortunately been met with delays and will not be completed within the desired timeframe.
Currently, AT&T anticipates their work to be completed by the end of September. Acqua Contractors will return as soon as the relocation is completed to begin the removal of the existing storm sewer pipe, installation of the rear yard inlets, grading and shaping of the ditch/swale, the replacement of curb, sidewalk and pavement, and placement of the sod. Construction is now targeted to be completed by late November 2018.
The contractor has suspended all construction activities and will inspect the entire site to ensure it is secure. During the delay and while AT&T completes their work, the site will be maintained in a safe condition.
