Alpine Road sewer repair project slows traffic


Drivers may face delays as a result of a project replacing a sewer main line on Alpine Road.

The work began earlier this month and will continue into July; construction hours are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

During construction, no-parking zones will be enforced. Access to properties will be maintained at all times for local residents and emergency services.

The West Bay Sanitary District will try to minimize the disruption caused by construction, district officials said. The agency said it is carrying out this work to repair and improve existing sewer lines.

The district is replacing almost 4,000 feet of pipe, according to West Bay engineering technician Jonathan Werness. The sewer flow will not be interrupted during construction, he said.
