Page 18 April 2018 Last Phase of Charbonneau High Priority Utility Repairs are Underway By Zach Weigel Construction of the last phase of Charbonneau high-priority util- ity repairs began in March. The planned work involves the repair and rehabilitation of failing util- ity lines that are broken, partially collapsed or sagging. This project consists of pipe- lines that were identifi ed as being the most defi cient and given the highest priority for repair as part of the Charbonneau Consolidated Improvement Plan, a 25-year plan to upgrade and improve defi cient Charbonneau infrastructure which was approved by City Council in August 2014. This project rep- resents the last of three phases to correct these most defi cient, high- priority pipelines within the Char- bonneau District. The fi rst phase of construction was completed in December 2016, and the second phase wrapped up just last month. Upon completion of the high- priority utility repairs this sum- mer, the focus of the Charbon- neau utility improvements will shift from spot repairs to a more comprehensive replacement of defi cient utilities within a specifi c area. Design of the fi rst project of this type is scheduled to be- gin next year and focus on the area around Old Farm Road and French Prairie Drive. Construction of the last phase of high-priority utility improve- ments includes repair of 1,500 feet of cracked and corroded storm pipe using a technique called Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP). This method of construction consists of inserting a resin-fi lled liner through the old pipe that is in- fl ated and steam cured to create a new pipe inside of the old one. This construction method moves along quickly, about a couple of blocks per day. However, the CIPP process generates a lot of noise and steam during installa- tion and can cause a styrene odor during the curing process that is noticeable but is not harmful. In some instances, the size and condition of the failing pipelines does not allow for CIPP rehabili- tation and the contractor must dig an open trench to repair and install new utility lines. This method of construction is much slower than CIPP, averaging a block per week. The project includes approxi- mately 2,500 feet of open-trench replacement of storm pipeline in Charbonneau. In addition to the pipeline work, the project also includes re- "One of the fi rst conditions of happiness is that the link between man and nature shall not be broken.” – Leo Tolstoy This chart shows the remaining streets affected by the City's utility repairs. placement of manholes and catch basins to current design standards which will improve drainage and maintenance access for utility workers. Service pipes servicing individual properties are also to be replaced within the roadway and an access port placed near the roadway curb. Construction, which is an- ticipated to be complete in July, is to be performed by the City’s contractor, Braun Construction & Design, on weekdays from 7 am to 5 pm with no work expected on the weekends. Due to the number of job sites involved in this large-scale proj- ect, there may be periods of time where the work appears to have stopped. The contractor is likely performing similar types of work at one time - such as catch-basin installation, fi nal paving, etc. - and is moving from site to site. Community members should expect daytime road closures in the areas of active construction, but normal traffi c operations are to be restored by 5 pm each day.
