Cedar Ravine Road Closed for 6 Weeks
The Cedar Ravine Sewer Main Relocation project will relocate existing above-ground sewer pipes along Cedar Ravine Rd. between Rowland St. and 175 feet upstream of Rowland St. which are currently located in Cedar Ravine Creek. A sewer main and parallel collector line will be relocated out of the creek and into the Cedar Ravine roadway. A new creek crossing will be constructed to intercept the private 4-inch sewer line that serves the four apartment buildings that front on Francis Ave., eliminating approximately 175 feet of exposed private 4- inch sewer line from the creek. This section of 4-inch sewer line has been the source of several recent sewer spills into the creek.
Because the construction will be through a rocky area, a large excavator will be required to dig the trench. With very limited space due to the steep bank on one side and the creek on the other, the only cost effective and timely solution for completing this construction is to provide a full traffic detour around the construction Zone. Construction is expected to require up to 6 weeks of an 8:30 am-4:30 pm closure of Cedar Ravine Road during trenching and repaving operations along the new alignment. The length of time will be dependent on weather conditions and on the amount of rock encountered during the excavation. Staff has identiﬁed the best detour as being Washington St./Corker St./Marshall Way in the northbound direction, and Darlington Way/Gerle St /Darlington Way in the southbound direction (as shown).
