Fairmount sewer project to begin week of July 18
The Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District will begin construction on the Fairmount Boulevard Relief Sewer the week of July 18.
This project includes the construction of 2,400 feet of new sanitary sewer between Wellington and Idlewood roads. In addition, contractors will re-line 2,250 feet of existing sanitary sewers and rehabilitate manholes along the section.
When the project is complete, there will be additional sanitary sewage capacity and reduced sanitary sewage overflows into Doan Brook.
Construction will occur in the two northernmost lanes of Fairmount Boulevard, closing those lanes to vehicular traffic. Although lane closures will occur, traffic will be maintained in both directions.
Side streets and individual driveways will be accessible, although metal plates may be in place at times.
All traffic plans have been approved by the City of Cleveland Heights.
Construction is expected to be complete the first week in November.
