This project will consist of installing a 96-inch storm sewer pipe between Highland Avenue and 2202 University Avenue (Octopus Car Wash). The pipe will be installed with tunneling equipment, which will reduce overall project impact. However, project operations will result in significant traffic disruptions in the area. Walnut Street will be closed for the duration of the project. Highland Avenue will be reduced to two lanes from mid May through mid August. One eastbound lane of Campus Drive will be closed from mid April through early July.
Minor road reconstruction will occur following the storm sewer installation. Approximately 245 feet of Highland Avenue will be reconstructed and Walnut Street will be resurfaced between University Avenue and the railroad crossing.
The project is anticipated to begin in mid April and last through August 31, 2013.
