Canal Drive Sanitary Sewer Pipeline Replacement


--Short-Term Turn Lane Closures & Flagging Operations--

HRSD, your regional wastewater treatment utility, has completed the pipeline installation on Canal Drive. The remaining work will include filling the old sewer pipe with flowable fill, a cementitious material that will allow the old pipe to safely stay in place so it does not have to be removed; removing old valve boxes; and milling and overlaying to prepare the roads for final paving. This work will occur along: Canal Drive between the intersections of Shell Road and South Military Highway, Baugher Avenue at the intersection of South Military Highway, and Butler Street at the intersection of South Military Highway. During the work, there will short-term lane closures and turn lane closures.


  • Beginning approximately January 28th, work will begin.
  • Lights and equipment will be used during later hours of the night. Noise and light exposure best practice methods will be used to reduce residential impacts.
  • The left turn lane on northbound Canal Drive to South Military Highway will be closed.
  • The right turn lane on southbound Shell Road to Canal Drive will be closed.
  • Signage will be in place to alert motorists to the flagging operation
  • No detours are anticipated during this work.
  • This should not affect your water or sewer services and is weather and situation dependent.
  • This portion of the work is anticipated to be completed approximately 2-3 weeks.

While our project team works diligently to minimize impacts, you may notice increased noise, traffic, crews, and heavy equipment (with back-up safety alarms) associated with construction. Please take care when traveling around the construction area and for your safety, do not enter the site.

Due to the nature of construction, work is weather and situation dependent and dates are subject to change. Please visit the project's website page, for updates.

Thank you for your support of this effort to help achieve HRSD's vision:

Future generations will inherit clean waterways and be able to keep them clean.
