[ARCHIVED] Construction Update fr the MCES Sewer Improvement Project

Construction crews mobilize equipment for pipe installation.

The Metropolitan Council Environment Services continue work on the Fridley/Tri City Sewer Improvements covering an approximate 1-mile section of aging and deteriorating sanitary sewer serving Fridley, New Brighton & Mounds View. Upcoming work includes:

On Tuesday, February 2, they will being lining a section of sewer near Pleasant View Drive. The
lining equipment will include a truck containing a boiler and pump and will be set up on the west side of Pleasant View Drive during construction. Equipment will need to run continuously (24 hours a day) and will produce some noise for surrounding residents. Construction in this area is anticipated to take four days. During this time, Pleasant View Drive will be reduced to one lane of traffic in both directions.

Over the next 2 weeks, they will also continue installing the pits adjacent to the Rice Creek Trail at Stinson Blvd, and Spring Creek Drive and at 69th Ave near Shamrock Lane. There will be no detour routes or road closures during these excavations. Dewatering wells will be installed near the excavation along 69th Ave as the excavation progresses.

The temporary wastewater conveyance system has been started and is expected to be in use through the first week of April while the pipe rehabilitation work takes place. Pump attendants will be on site monitoring the system 24 hours a day. Noise levels near the pumping locations and along the conveyance pipes will be monitored to ensure compliance with City/Regulatory agency requirements.
