Fassnight Stormwater Improvement Project Update
April 7, 2021
This week Hartman & Co. will be installing road closure signage along Brookside Drive between Kings Avenue and Green Avenue to prepare the area for relocation of sanitary sewer lines and future realignment of the roadway. This long-term closure is expected to last until fall.
Relocation of sewer lines is necessary to allow the expansion of the channel and future re-alignment of Brookside Drive. Local traffic will still be allowed from Green to Linwood Circle to maintain access to Perry Tennis Courts. Art Museum access will be maintained via Green Avenue to Bennett Street.
In addition to the closure of Brookside Drive, Hartman will be completing construction of new concrete retaining wall and sanitary sewer concrete structures at Kings Avenue.
Anticipated Next Week:
Early next week, the contractor anticipates installing temporary bypass pump setups to bypass the sanitary sewer to allow for relocation of the sewer main. There will be temporary, above-ground, sewer lines installed crossing Brookside Drive, south of the Art Museum entrance, and parallel to north side of Brookside Drive, from Kings Avenue to the intersection of Linwood Circle and Brookside Drive. The sanitary bypass pumping is anticipated to last approximately one week with no interruption in sewer service expected.
The contractor also expects demolition and removal of the parking lot vehicular access bridge located west of the Art Museum building, as well as other demolition and excavation in this general area south of the existing Art Museum Parking lot.
Thank you for your continued patience as construction on this project ramps up. Please reach out with any questions or concerns.
