23rd Street Waterline
The project consisted of replacing 2,800 linear feet of 16-inch waterline, multiple service line connections, fire hydrants, all associated valves, fittings and other appurtenances and installing a 6-inch meter vault and assembly for previously un-metered fire flow. The project also replaced sidewalk on street corners impacted by the waterline replacement and installed ADA-compliant wheelchair ramps. Multiple alignments were considered during the conceptual stage of the project, but due to the close proximity of adjacent buildings, the waterline was installed under 23rd Street, resulting in the removal and replacement of 4,360 square yards of pavement. With the entire outside eastbound lane being removed and replaced on the project, a local stormwater drainage problem was corrected by re-grading 90 linear feet of curb and gutter and replacing a drainage inlet. A traffic control and phasing plan was prepared to provide two-way traffic throughout construction.
