Due to the age and condition of the sanitary sewer lines in the area, many residents within the Harris Addition suffer from sewer backups during rainfall events, and the conditions of the alleys within the neighborhood are such that they need to be replaced. As a majority of the sewer lines in this area are under the center of the alleys, it is efficient to replace both.
The Town plans only to replace the existing alleyways. Curbs may be added in some places as needed for drainage. We plan to keep all existing curbs..
Currently, all survey and line location work within the boundaries of this project is complete. If any stakes have been newly placed in your yard, they are not related to this project. There are franchise utility lines in this area and any stakes in your yard could mean that maintenance on those lines is scheduled. Please do not disturb any unexplained stakes in your yard. If you are concerned, please contact the Town and we can investigate further. This information is as of July 2020 and will be updated as construction gets closer.
At this time, the project is separated by Manor Way. The lines serving all homes east of Manor Way will be designed throughout the 2020 calendar year, and construction is estimated to begin in late 2020 or early 2021.
While the east portion of the sewer system is under construction, our engineers will be working to design the sewer lines serving those on the west side of Manor Way (est. 2021), and construction is expected to begin in 2022.
As a part of the project, contractors will be required to replace sod and other items that have to be removed for the construction. Fence removal may be necessary in limited circumstances, and the contractors will be responsible for temporary fencing and replacement of the fence once the project is complete. Any such removal and replacement will be done at no cost to the homeowner.
There will be times that the alleys will be closed during construction. It is estimated that these closures will last approximately 30 days. During that time, residents will need to park on the street, and will need to have their trash picked up in the front of the property. Homeowners will be contacted individually with more detailed information regarding scheduling and duration of closures as we move towards construction and this information is worked out in detail.
Driveway approaches (only the small portion connecting to the alley concrete) will be replaced as part of the project.
Please contact Town Engineer Lyle Jenkins for more detailed information about this project. He can be reached at (972) 203-4115, or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you wish, we can schedule an individual appointment for you to come in to Town Hall to view the plans and ask any detailed questions you may have. Please bear in mind that face masks are required for all persons entering Town Hall until further notice and we ask that you observe social distancing guidelines.
