2014 SBURD Sewer Project

August 22, 2014 Update:

See the link below for an overview of the upcoming work areas and general project status.  

SEWER:  Work during the week starting August 25 will include sewer main installation in the alley east of Hillview between Vaughn and Morgan, and may include the short lateral mains in Morgan and the alley north of Morgan.  Construction will involve trenching to install the new sewer pipeline.  Individual sewer service stubs will be completed up to the property line only.  Mitchell and Morgan will be periodically closed to thru traffic east of Hillview, but limited local access will be provided.  Driveway access in the immediate vicinity of the work may be unavailable at times.

WATER:  Work during the week starting August 25 will include the completion of water main replacement in Mitchell between Hallowell and Hillview.  Construction will involve trenching to remove the existing pipeline and replace it with a new pipeline.  Individual water services will be reconnected in the street at the water main.  Water users whose services are affected by this project have been placed on a temporary water system and will see no changes to water service.  Mitchell will be closed to thru traffic, but limited local access will be provided.  Driveway access in the immediate vicinity of the work may be unavailable at times.

Project Overview:

The 'SBURD Sanitary Sewer – Phase 1' project consists of the installation of 4,500 feet of new sanitary sewer pipelines in the neighborhood east of Optimist Park on the South Side of Billings.  The project area is bounded by Hallowell Lane to the west, Clevenger Avenue to the north, Jackson Street to the east, and Ryan Avenue to the south.  This area is currently not served by the City's sewer collection system, so each home has an individual septic system.  The project will provide a service stub from the new mains to each lot for connection by the property owner.  The work is being funded by the South Billings Urban Renewal District (SBURD) tax increment financing (TIF) district.  One block of existing water main on Mitchell Avenue, between Hallowell Lane and Hillview Lane, will also be replaced as part of this project.  Construction is expected to last about 3 to 4 months starting in late June.  The project is being constructed by COP Construction.  The City's engineering consultant that is overseeing construction is DOWL HKM.
