Greenmeadow Sanitary Interceptor Project

Construction Update –June 14, 2019



This project will include installation of a new sanitary interceptor sewer from the intersection of Greenmeadow Dr. and Michigan Ave. to the intersection of College Ave. and Sentry Dr. in 2018 and 2019. This sewer will allow the elimination of the Greenmeadow and Woodfield pump stations.

This week’s work:
• Continued tunneling operations at the Madison St/Joellen Dr intersection shaft towards the Lowell Park shaft. Approx. 870 feet of this tunnel is complete.
• Completed construction of a maintenance shaft for the tunneling work in the south side of the roadway near 1945 Madison St.
• Continued sanitary interceptor sewer installation on S Moreland Blvd at W St Paul heading to the north along with water lateral and sanitary lateral work. Work has been slowed this week because of poor ground conditions and conflicts with existing utilities.
• Removed and replaced curb on south half of W St Paul Ave
• Continued restoration work in Lowell Park

Next week’s work:
• Continue tunneling from the Madison St/Joellen Dr intersection shaft towards the Lowell Park shaft
• Continue sanitary interceptor sewer installation on S Moreland Blvd near Motor Ave heading to the north along with water lateral and sanitary lateral work
• Begin paving operations on south half of W St Paul Ave
