Storm Sewer and Sanitary Sewer Started along Henley Street

This past week, DiMeo Brothers  began installing the storm sewer improvements at the intersection of Lehigh Avenue and Henley Street. The contractor installed the first of two large junction chambers at the intersection of Lehigh Avenue and Henley Street. The second junction chamber will be installed at Henley Street and Washington Street.

The contractor then began to install the 48-inch storm sewer west along Henley Street from Lehigh Avenue towards Harlem Avenue.

At the same time the contractor is installing the new 48-inch storm sewer, they are also replacing the existing 8-inch clay sanitary sewer with a new 8-inch PVC sewer pipe. The reason the contractor is doing this is because the pipelines are in close enough proximity that it is easier to install at the same time vs. one at a time.

Next week the contractor will continue moving west along Henley Street installing the new storm sewer and sanitary sewer at the same time.

Once the contractor has completed installing the storm sewer and sanitary sewer along Henley Street from Harlem to Lehigh, a separate crew will be on-site installing new water main in this same block. The storm and sanitary sewer installation crew will continue working west of Harlem on Henley Street, while the water main installation will be working behind them. This staging will continue throughout the construction process.  

While the work continues along Henley Street between Lehigh Avenue and Harlem Avenue, residents in the area will be able to utilize the temporary construction roadway for accessing their homes.

The Village understands the impacts and inconveniences the construction work has on the adjacent residents including dust, delays in getting around the area, and difficulty in getting to you homes. Please understand the Village will do everything possible to make the work progress a smoothly as possible to minimize these inconveniences.
