Morgan Construction Inc. working under contract for the City of Oak Ridge, Public Works Department, will be relocating and upsizing the gravity sanitary sewer line from Cairo Road on the south side of Oak Ridge Turnpike to Athens Road north of Oak Ridge Turnpike.

Excavation to replace the line will require the closure of both Science.Gov Way and Brisbane Road at various times beginning the December 7, 2012 through January 11, 2013. Some of the closures will involve intermittent interruptions of traffic or temporary lane closures with flagmen present; however a portion of the work will require that each of the roads be completely closed at times.

If possible, motorists are requested to avoid the area, however local traffic will be able to access area business. Warehouse Road and Brussels Road will be available as alternative routes. The City apologizes for any inconvenience this work may cause.

Questions or comments can be directed to the City of Oak Ridge, Public Works Department at 425-1875.
