Skinner Industrial Drive Trunkmain Replacement & Intersection Improvements

Impacted Ward: 8

Contractor: XL Contracting

Project Description

The project is located along Skinner Industrial Drive at New Town Blvd. The existing 27-inch asphalt-lined corrugated metal pipe from the outlet of the Sandfort Creek force main to the 42-inch trunkmain at New Town Blvd is in poor condition and in need of replacement. The project will replace approximately 2,150 linear feet of sanitary trunk sewer.

Design of the realignment of Skinner Industrial Drive at New Town Blvd to Mueller Road was added to the project. This will help to alleviate congestion at the Mueller Road signal due to truck traffic entering Skinner Industrial Drive.
