18th & Fort Sewer Improvements Project


Schedule

Bids for this project were opened by the City January 15, 2020. Construction is underway.

Project Description

The 18th and Fort Sewer Improvements project is a Renovation of Combined Sewer (RNC) Project intended to reduce the surcharging of the combined sewer system along Fort Street between 16th and 20th Streets. This combined sewer originates at N. 26th and Taylor Streets and flows into the North Interceptor just east of N. 17th and Fort Streets.

The project area is generally bounded on the north by Fort Street, on the south by Taylor Street, on the east by 16th Street, and on the west by 26st Street.

Construction

There is approximately 14 acres of surface drainage contributing to the combined sewer system upstream of the manhole that has historically surcharged north of 1823 Fort Street.

The Carter Boulevard Detention Pond construction is also underway, with Carter Lake parking lot construction continuing into the latter part of 2020.

Cast-in-place pipelining work in various project areas will take place in May and June of 2021.

Project Benefits

This 18th and Fort Sewer Improvements project is intended to reduce the surcharging of the combined sewer system and ultimately result in reduced sewer backups into area homes.
