April 16, 2018 -  The sewer project that will protect the St. Marys River moves into a new phase on Monday, April 16, 2018, when the installation of two 60-inch-diameter pipes begins at the intersection of Harrison and Superior Streets. 

To accommodate the improvements the intersection at Harrison and Superior will be closed. The closure is expected to continue through late June while two 60-inch-diameter pipes, one for stormwater and the other for combined sewage, are installed under the intersection.

The sewage pipe will eventually connect to City Utilities’ Deep Rock Tunnel, when it is completed and operational in 2023. 

City Utilities hired a contractor, API Construction, to do the work this year to coincide with the multiple riverfront development projects that include a park, residential and retail initiatives. The coordination will allow the work to be done and out of the way so those projects can move forward.
