Another sewer separation project is on tap for the Village of Swanton this year.
The Project 10 sewer separation is scheduled to get underway this month, weather permitting. Specific dates will be posted on the village Facebook page when known.
The project will encompass Brookside Drive from Hallett Avenue to just east of Crestwood Drive and portions of Woodside and Parkside drives, according to Village Administrator Rosanna Hoelzle..
Work on Brookside Drive will be more extensive, and could lead to intermittent road closures. Following the separation of sewers, Brookside will be completely reconstructed with new curbs, similar to what was done on Church Street in the summer of 2018.
The curbs will be installed from Hallett Avenue to just east of Crestwood Drive. “There are no sidewalks being installed, and the walking/biking lane will be removed due to current regulations not being met,” Hoelzle said.
Work is tentatively expected to begin on Woodside and Parkside.
“The work on Parkside and Woodside will be on a much smaller scale than Brookside,” the administrator said. “There should be no complete road closures but there may be times when there will be a flagger directing traffic.”
Parkside Drive will be milled and filled once the underground infrastructure work is complete. Woodside Drive is not going to be milled and filled. It will be patched where underground work takes place.
Hoelzle could not say if there would be any impact to pick-up and drop off at Swanton Elementary School on Crestwood Drive. But she did say Swanton Local Schools will be notified if any impact were to occur.
Underground Utilities earned the contract for the Project 10 sewer separation with a bid of $1,037,027.75. Their bid came in below the engineer’s estimated cost of $1,450,244.
