2014 SBURD Sewer Project

September 22, 2014 Update:

See the link below exhibit for an overview of the current work areas and general project status.  Work during the week starting September 22 will include the continuation of sewer main installation in the alley south of Morgan between Jackson and Hillview.  Construction will involve trenching to install the new sewer pipeline.  Individual sewer service stubs will be completed up to the property line only.  This is the last segment of sewer main that will be installed for this project.  Remaining work includes gravel surfacing in several alleys and miscellaneous clean-up activities.  It is anticipated that this will be the final construction update for this project.

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.
