George St Bypass Stormsewer Project

This project includes installation of approximately 1,800 feet of 42-inch diameter storm sewer along George St from the existing culvert under George St to Redmond Reservoir. The project also includes installation of smaller storm sewer later pipes ranging from 12 to 24-inch in diameter.

Other major work items include storm sewer removal, pavement removal, resurfacing George St within project limits, spot sidewalk replacement, and spot curb and gutter replacement. Miscellaneous items of work include replacement of sanitary service adjustments, water service adjustments and landscape restoration.

The project is anticipated to begin on April 9, 2018 and has a completion date of June 30, 2018.

For the project duration, George St, within the project limits will be limited to Eastbound traffic only. The westbound traffic will be detoured to Jefferson St. Please see attached map.

08/16/2018 Update

This project is substantially completed. Landscape (SOD) restoration will be completed in the Fall of 2018.

08/02/2018 Update

During week of July 30, the contractor adjusted the manholes to grade, installed topsoil, removed 2-inch surface in EB lane and are scheduled to install surface on Friday Aug 3.

Weather permitting, the week of August 6, the contractor will install the pavement markings after which the detour will be lifted and George St will be resumed to two-way traffic. Landscape (SOD) restoration will be completed in the Fall of 2018.

06/05/2018 Update

During the week of June 4, the contractor will continue to install the 42-inch storm sewer along George St. Due to the unforeseen underground conflicts with other utilities, this project is slightly behind schedule. At this time, majority of the underground improvements are projects to be completed by June 30th; however, pavement restoration will likely be completed in mid-July.

05/18/2018 Update

During week of May 14, the contractor installed approximately 80 feet of 42-inch storm sewer as well as installed the revetment met at the downstream end of the flared end section discharging into Redmond Reservoir.  The contractor is now installing the storm sewer under George St. This installation operation will last for at least 4-5 weeks, weather permitting. During this operation, eastbound traffic will incur heavy delays. The westbound traffic is detoured to Jefferson St. It is best to avoid George St during construction.

05/04/2018 Update

As of now, the contractor plans to tentatively start this project on May 7, 2018. Changeable message signs have been erected at the east and west end of George St. During the week May 7, contractor is scheduled to begin storm sewer installation starting at Redmond Reservoir and work their way west. A westbound detour to Jefferson St will likely be installed next week and will be in effect the week of May 14th. Once the contractor is beginning to install the storm sewer on George St, eastbound traffic will incur heavy delays. It is best to avoid George St during construction.
