South Norfolk Pump Stations & Sanitary Sewer Replacement Project




Second Revised Notice of 24-Hour Work: Park Avenue

On September 8 (Construction Notice #8), we informed you that aimage planned period of 24-hour work was expected to occur between September 10th and September 13th. Due to repair issues, the 24-hour work was postponed again. 

The contractor is tentatively scheduled to begin 24-hour work tomorrow night (September 14). If the work begins on September 14, it will conclude on September 17. However, this schedule is dependent upon successful completion of repairs to the drill and may continue to be postponed. 

We apologize for this delay and thank you for your patience with the repair issue. If the work is postponed again, we will again provide 24-hours’ notice of the new schedule.

As a reminder, this 24-hour work is necessary because once the drilling effort begins, the contractor is unable to stop until the bore is complete.

Once the contractor completes this 24-hour work, they will be able to close the pits to eliminate safety hazards during non-working hours.

During this operation, you may hear noises such as drilling, engines, backup alarms, diesel generator and motors. Your water and sewer service will not be disrupted.

Sewer manhole installation and road reconstruction at the excavation pits will continue to take place during the new daytime hours (7AM – Sunset) in the days following these 24-hour drilling periods. Roadway paving work to include base layer paving is expected to be completed by mid-October.


While our project team works diligently to minimize impacts, you may notice increased noise and traffic, along with the people 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.
