Schedule Update (6/5/19)
The contractor has completed the installation of 1,500 feet of new water line. A second crew has been added to the project to expedite the water line replacement. This project is currently running on schedule.
North of East Dry Creek Road and east of South Quebec Street, Centennial
Replacement of approximately 14,000 feet of 12-inch, 8-inch, 6-inch, and 4-inch water mains, valves, and fire hydrants
Bid - February 2019
Construction - May through October 2019 The contractor will begin mobilization efforts the week of May 5th, 2019.
The typical events occurring during waterline replacement construction looks like:
Mill the pavement where the new waterline is to be installed
Set-up traffic control for the safety of works, drivers, and pedestrians
Dig a trench for a section of waterline to be replaced
Install the new waterline
Backfill the trench and compact the soil
Test the new waterline – we test to make sure it does not leak and that it is clean
Fully connect the new waterline to the existing system
Transfer homes from the old waterline to the new waterline
Open the street to traffic before moving on to the next section of pipe - the contractor will likely come back to pave at a later date (in order to do a lot of the paving at once), but it will be drivable in the meantime
Restore disturbed areas to similar conditions as before construction
