Market Street Sewer Project – Phase 1

By | August 27, 2018


November 28 Update: Due to weather delays, the Market Street Sewer Project will continue through December. Capital Region Water estimates Market Street will reopen after repairs are complete by the end of December. Thank you for your continued patience with this critical project.

Two 36-inch sewer mains built in 1885 and 1912 run below Market Street conveying a combination of stormwater and wastewater to Capital Region Water’s Advanced Wastewater Treatment Facility.

Project Purpose:
This project will rehabilitate 2,120 feet of 36-inch sewer mains with cured-in-place pipe lining, pipe replacement, and new manholes along Market Street between 13th Street and Cameron Street.

Project Summary:
Above ground pipes will be installed in the project area to bypass flows while cured-in-place pipe and replacement work occurs. Cured-in-place pipe will be installed inside the existing sewer pipes to create a new, structurally sound pipe. Excavation and pipe replacement will occur in areas where cured-in-place pipe cannot be installed. To protect public safety, Market Street will be closed between 13th Street and Cameron Street during this work. Capital Region Water will provide advanced notice of this temporary detour on Capital Region Water’s website, and Twitter.

Estimated Project Timeline:
•August through October: Crews will install new pipe and manholes in the project area.
•October: Crews will install temporary bypass pumps and piping and install cured-in-place pipe lining.
•November: The project will end with full restoration of Market Street.

Project Detour:
•The sidewalk will be open to pedestrians in the project area.
•Traffic will be detoured to Paxton Street.

Customer Impacts:
Market Street closure / detour, construction noise, bypass pumping noise
