News & Information
This undertaking has actually been three related projects, to reline aging sewer lines along both sides of the Rillito, and now to connect north and south via a brand new full-on excavation project to lay pipe under the bed of the river. The initial process, which the workers call "clearing and grubbing" (digging out trees and shrubs) will begin at the north end of Columbus Blvd. around December 15th – 18th.
DOG WALKER ALERT: The circle at the dead end of Columbus is a popular parking spot and access route to the wash. Please be aware that the work area will not be safe for your canine companion for the next 8 or 9 weeks.
On Monday, January 5th, the intersection at Columbus and Paradise Falls will be closed until mid-February; this will be a "hard close," curb to curb, barring all vehicular, bicycle and pedestrian traffic until mid-February. Access to the Loop multi-use path will be closed during the work, and segments of the Loop itself may be closed off intermittently.
According to Pima County Wastewater Reclamation, the timing of this final phase of the relief project is dictated by the possibility of flooding in the Rillito. This will be heavy construction work, but it will all be done during daylight hours. The only noise constraints are expected to be back-up beepers.
We hope you'll be patient and stay safe, and even share some holiday spirit with the construction workers. Tis the season. For more information, visit www.sewerimprovements.info or call 520-622-2527.
