Final Striping along 9th Street Anticipated to Occur Next Week

The City has approved its Downtown Sewer Upgrade contractor’s request to finalize striping, signage and curb painting along the 9th Street corridor next Thurs., Dec 27 and Fri., Dec 28 (subject to sub-contractor’s availability). This striping work is necessary to keep motorists and bicyclists safe and aware of all structural changes and improvements to the street.

Remaining punch list items will be deferred until after the first of the year and are expected to be complete by mid-January 2019.

9th Street Corridor Update

Construction of the Downtown Sewer Upgrade along 9th Street occurred for five blocks from G to L streets and consisted of both open cut and tunneling activities. 9th Street had many unforeseen and unprecedented circumstances caused by the required unique construction methods and sequencing. There were many big challenges that affected the overall project schedule and caused many delays, but construction will wrap up just before the Thanksgiving holiday (pending weather). The following improvements were made to the City’s Combined Sewer System along the 9th Street corridor.

  • Installation of a 60-inch in diameter combined sewer pipeline using open-cut, tunnel boring and pipe jacking equipment
  • New combined sewer manholes, drain inlets, sewer service connections and other associated work
