Remington Street Stormwater Improvements & Sewer Line Replacement (February-July 2020)

Following the CDC’s guidelines to continue to provide essential services, Utilities construction projects are moving forward as planned. Construction crews are following recommended safe distancing and good hygiene.





An undersized stormwater system and aging sanitary mains will be replaced in Remington Street from Spring Park Drive to Prospect Road from February to July. This project will improve wastewater operations and drainage and flood protection in the neighborhood. By providing a larger capacity stormwater connection from the Prospect/College intersection to Spring Creek, it also will reduce flooding issues at this major intersection.

PROJECT DETAILS

  • Beginning in mid-February, existing storm drainage pipe will be replaced along three blocks of Remington Street (from Spring Park Drive to Prospect Road) with large diameter storm pipe and new inlets at the Stuart and Parker street intersections.
  • The sanitary sewer main will be replaced in the 1600 and 1800 blocks of Remington Street, and an additional parallel sanitary sewer main will be installed on the east side of the 1800 block of Remington Street.
  • Construction will begin in the 1800 block of Remington Street and continue north.The road will be closed to vehicle traffic and parking along each block during active construction.
  • The intersections of Remington Street and Prospect Road and Remington Street and Spring Park Drive will be open to east- and west-bound traffic during construction.

Alleys and sidewalks typically will remain open with temporary sidewalk closures when needed for safety. Residents will always have access to their homes but will not be able to park in front of their homes or in the driveways when the block is closed for construction. After the utilities work is complete on the block and a drivable surface has been installed, local access will be opened for residents to park in their driveways.

Remington Street is a designated bike route and a bike lane may be provided along one side of the road, or bikes will be detoured around the construction zone onto other streets. The safest routes will be determined prior to construction.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Utilities’ contractor, Garney Construction, will begin construction in mid-February and is expected to be finished by mid-July. Mobilization will begin the week of February 17 and construction should begin February 24, weather permitting. Each block will be fully closed from 6 to 10 weeks, with partial road closures also occurring on adjacent blocks.

Partial closure means that the road will be intermittently open to residents to park in their driveway only. Through-traffic and on-street parking will not be available during partial closures.

During construction you can expect to have trenches, earth mounds, dust and noise from large equipment directly in front of your property. Typically, construction will occur weekdays only, 7 a.m.–6 p.m.

WHERE TO PARK

  • Residents located in the construction zone who will not have vehicle access to their homes can apply (at the Open House or Parking Services at 215 N. Mason) for up to three FREE parking permits to park on adjacent open streets during construction. On-line applications are not available for free permits. Residents who already have parking permits may park on adjacent streets.
  • This area is in Zone 4 of the Residential Parking Permit Program (RP3), https://www.fcgov.com/parking/pdf/zone-4-old-prospect.pdf?1538595446
  • Suggested parking locations during construction include the free parking zone on Spring Park Drive and the permitted parking zones on Stuart, Parker and Mathews streets. https://www.fcgov.com/parking/

SAFETY                      

Roads and intersections are closed for safety and to complete the job as efficiently as possible. Safety for residents, bike riders, commuters, pedestrians and work crews is a top priority. Barricades and fences will be used to clearly mark areas of excavation at nights and on weekends. Detour routes will be provided as needed. Please keep children and pets away from construction zones.
