Back in February we wrote about the proactive repair work that was going to replace about 50′ of saggin sewer line near 31st & E. Thomas. Originally estimated to last 2-3 weeks, the work there is still ongoing.
SPU project manager Young Kim tells us that the scope of the work unexpectedly expanded once construction started, and now includes a full 150 feet of pipeline between two manholes.
The expanded worked has taken the project across Thomas, regularly interrupting traffic there.
Kim says that the new estimate for completion is within the next couple of weeks, and that once it’s finished SDOT will come out to replace the concrete in the street, sidewalks, and adjacent curb-ramps.
