Neighborhood Streets Project Encounters Sewer Issues

The summer began with supply chain issues that continue to plague contractors, and continues with the city finding sewer and storm-drain issues that need to be corrected before paving begins in the number streets.

"That we're finding some unknown problems isn't surprising, given that it's one of our older subdivisions," said Department of Public Works Director Dan Brisson.

Here is the latest information about the schedule on the three major projects being done this summer:

  • Torrey Road Project: Construction, which includes about a mile of resurfaced roadway and improvements to guardrails and sidewalks, continues.
  • Neighborhood Streets Improvement Project: There is a new schedule that details the plan for the rest of the summer.
  • Main Street Rehabilitation: The work to pave the project began this week and should be complete by November.

What do we mean when we cite supply chain issues? One example would be a product called silt fencing, which has been difficult to acquire. It is required to comply with soil erosion rules and permits. So while they might not be big-ticket items, the inability to procure them can result in significant delays.
