CIPP Lining to begin the week of March 7th
Beginning on or around March 7, 2022, City contractors will rehabilitate aging sewers on several streets in Spring Hill. Crews will use a method called cured-in-place-pipe lining (CIPP lining) to provide more structurally sound pipes without excavation.
Locations: Central Street and Cambria Street, then Gibbens Street, Westwood Road, Oxford Street, Carter Terrace, and Summer Street
Anticipated Work Schedule: Weekdays between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., starting March 7 for approximately four weeks. Hours may extend to 10 p.m. on streets with larger sewers. Subject to change due to weather or other factors.
Odor: Plastic- or glue-like odors may be detectable when the liner cures. This will dissipate quickly once the process is complete. If you are sensitive to odors, consider opening windows or doors to increase airflow.
Noise: Moderate noise from compressors, blowers, truck engines, and bypass pumps.
Traffic Impacts: On-street parking restrictions expected on both sides of the work zone. Lane shifts and isolated lane closures will be in effect.
