City planning $15M major underground infrastructure project
Most people don’t think about it, but buried under our roads, easements, parks and other open spaces are miles and miles of a criss-crossed web of huge pipes that carry our drinking water, sewage, and storm water (just to name a few).
Like anything else, those pipes only last so long, and when it’s time to replace them, you’re talking about a major project.
That’s the kind of project just announced by city utility officials who are starting plans to shore up miles of huge sewage pipes stretching between I-95 and the city’s sewage plant near the Turnpike.
The project, estimated to cost in the neighborhood of $15 million dollars, involves reinforcing a major sewer main that runs east-west between the plant and I-95.
The line runs under Roebuck Road from the plant to Military Trail. It then crosses under Military Trail and continues in a straight line due east along a canal behind Bear Lakes Middle School. It runs under the Bear Lakes golf course before ending just before I-95. There are also two schools along the route.
