Work began Monday to repair sewer lines around Crosby.
Once the lines are repaired they will be lined as part of Crosby’s Citywide Street Reconstruction project, according to Mayo Project Superintendent Bill Werven.
In order to repair the lines, workers with Kemper Construction, a subsidiary of Farden Construction which has been subcontracting with Engineering AE2S on the Crosby Citywide Street Reconstruction project, will have to open roughly 15 foot by 15 foot holes in the road at repair sites, including 21 repair sites on streets that are slated for paving starting early in August.
Priority will be given to repairing lines on streets that will be paved.
“Between starting sewer and getting ready for paving it’ll be busy,” Werven said.
This week work has also continued on pouring sidewalks in Crosby’s downtown area.
According to Werven, sidewalk work started later last week than initially anticipated, in order to accommodate the city council’s request that commercial sidewalks be reinforced.
According to Werven, things are still on pace for an early August start to paving.
The next Citywide Street Construction progress meeting will be Aug. 4 at 2 p.m. in the Crosby Community Center.
