Wythe Creek Road Sewer Replacement

Bethel-Poquoson Force Main Phase II (Wythe Creek Road) Replacement YR014300


HRSD is undertaking a project to replace sewer pipe along a section of Wythe Creek Road in Poquoson. This project consists of installing approximately 3,700 linear feet of 20-inch HDPE sewer pipe to replace an existing 20-inch concrete sewer pipe that is inactive. A portion of the existing 20-inch sewer pipe will be slip-lined with a 4-inch sewer pipe to provide a replacement connection to the City Pump Station. Slip-lining is when a smaller diameter pipe is installed into a larger diameter pipe. The remaining existing 20-inch concrete pipe will not carry wastewater flow, and it will be abandoned and filled with a cementitious-like material to allow the old pipe to stay safely in place. This allows for less disturbance as the old pipe can stay in the ground rather than being dug up and removed. This project will increase operational flexibility and sewer system reliability.  
 
Most of the construction activities will be off the road within the VDOT right of way. However, during construction hours, periodic lane closures will be in effect with flagging operations for motorists. We will work with the businesses and residences when an entrance may be disturbed during construction activities.

Project Cost: $3.2 million
