Work On Heber Ave. Continues And Could Move Into The Main St. Intersection Next Week
The replacement of the waterline on Heber Ave. continues to stay on schedule in spite of the snow last week and the contaminated soils. Officials say the manhole at the intersection of Heber and Main is next. KPCW’s Melissa Allison has more:
The city has laid most of the main waterline down Heber Ave. and Park City Public Utilities Director Clint McAffee said dealing with the contaminated soils is the most difficult part of the job at this point.
“One of the challenges we continue to run in is, into is trying to haul the contaminated soils out,” McAffee said. “So we’re staging dumpsters there and the contractor fills those dumpsters with dirt and separate company comes and picks those up and hauls them out of town and then drops new dumpsters.”
But its not just hauling dirt out of town that is the problem. Getting the clean dirt in town to replace it has its challenges as well.
Even so, McAffee said they should be finished and will move on to replacing the manhole at the intersection of Main St. and Heber Ave.
“That’ll probably add, maybe four or five days to the project,” McAffee said. “But, that’s an important piece of infrastructure to get replaced while we’re already digging in the area to avoid future disturbance in that area. Other than those two things, things are progressing generally as planned.”
While the city is still creating a strategy for traffic while work on the manhole is being done, McAffee said they’ll most likely have to close the intersection off for a couple of days.
He said that work could begin as early as next week.
