(PAR 1250 – Interceptor Rehabilitation 2015 Project)
As part of ongoing and routine system maintenance, the Metro Wastewater Reclamation District will be rehabilitating segments of pipe within western Aurora. Work on this critical infrastructure is scheduled to begin in early January.
The Pipeline Maintenance Project in Aurora is necessary to maintain approximately 55,000 feet of pipeline that runs from Parker Road and I-225 to Smith Road and Dayton Street. Construction will be limited to brief disturbances at a series of six worksites.
Construction staging at the first worksite, located in the area of 24th Avenue and Beeler Street, is underway and actual pipeline rehabilitation work is set to begin the week of January 11, 2016. Upon completion, each worksite will be restored to preconstruction conditions and crews will move to the next site.
The construction method for this section of the project (known as “cured in place pipe or CIPP”) allows work to be completed within a relatively small footprint and without interruption of service. However, CIPP installation cannot be performed during live flow conditions and requires temporary above-ground bypass pumping. Short-term road closures and/or traffic detours may be needed along bypass pumping routes.
The Metro District is committed to completing this routine maintenance project safely, efficiently, and with minimal disturbance to local businesses, residents, and visitors.
