Turtle Park Sewer Rehabilitation Project Update


DECEMBER 22, 2017

Sewer rehabilitation will continue for the weeks of December 26, 2017, through January 5, 2018, with Hurst Excavating, LLC, working under contract for the City of Oak Ridge to rehabilitate sewer collection pipes in the Turtle Park Sewer Shed (click to see map).

Areas affected by phase two of the project include City easements in yards and in roadways.

Drivers, pedestrians and cyclists are urged to use extreme care and caution when traveling on streets included in the sewer work area. Temporary road repairs will be made and loose gravel should be expected until the patches are permanently paved.

Construction work scheduled to begin on Tuesday, December 26, 2017, and run through Friday, January 5, 2018, includes the following locations:

  • Beverly Circle
  • Briar Road
  • East Irving Lane
  • Hillside Road
  • Illinois Avenue
  • Jefferson Avenue
  • Middlebury Road
  • Moore Lane
  • Warwick Lane
  • West Washburn Circle
All construction work is subject to change based on such unknowns as weather, equipment and access issues. Residents should have already received door hangers on bright orange paper providing general details about the project as well as the contractor’s contact information.
