Turtle Park Sewer Rehabilitation Project Update


January 12, 2018

Sewer rehabilitation will continue for the week of January 15, 2018, with Hurst Excavating, LLC, working under contract for the City of Oak Ridge to rehabilitate sewer collection pipes in the Turtle Park Sewer Shed (click to see map).

Areas affected by phase two of the project include City easements in yards and in roadways.

Drivers, pedestrians and cyclists are urged to use extreme care and caution when traveling on streets included in the sewer work area. Temporary road repairs will be made and loose gravel should be expected until the patches are permanently paved.

Construction work scheduled to begin on Monday, January 15, 2018, includes the following locations:

  • East Irving Lane
  • East Judd Lane
  • Hillside Road
  • Jefferson Avenue
  • Louisiana Avenue
  • Robertsville Road
  • West Washburn Circle
All construction work is subject to change based on such unknowns as weather, equipment and access issues. Residents should have already received door hangers on bright orange paper providing general details about the project as well as the contractor’s contact information.
