Phase two of a project to replace old sewer lines on Bingham and Ridgeley roads began Monday.

The $1.8 million project will install around 3,290 feet of new PVC sewer main and add more manholes to the area. Construction also will remove connections to the private common collector and connect the 40 properties in the area to the new public sewer, according to a news release from the city.

The old, private sewer lines were replaced with new public lines during phase one of the project.

Phase two will involve removing temporary concrete and replacing it with permanent concrete in the area. The affected streets will be milled and overlaid with new asphalt, according to the news release.

Phase two construction is expected to finish within two to three weeks, weather permitting, and will begin daily between 7 and 8 a.m.

The project is funded by Sewer Utility-Private Common Collector Elimination Funds, which were part of bond funds approved by voters in November 2013. The Columbia City Council first approved PCCE 16 in May 2017 after a public hearing. 

Supervising editor is Libby Stanford.
