Sunnyside Sanitary Project Update (updated on 4/3/19)
The Village of Westchester reports the following update regarding the Sunnyside Sanitary Project Update. Work began about 200 feet west of the creek bridge along the bike path. To date, 4 manholes and 900 feet of 30” pipe have been installed at an average depth of 20 feet. The work began west of the bike path bridge and turned north along the bike path/Edgewood. Spring melt, rains and ground water have caused difficult working conditions for the contractor, impacting progress. Due to the ground water, equipment and materials along the bike path, the Forest Preserve and the contractor decided to close the bike path to the public for safety reasons. The bike path between 31st Street and Jackson will remain closed until the pipe has been installed. The contractor’s goal was to install 150 feet of pipe per day, but because of all the ground water and unstable soils, they are able to install 22 feet per day. The boring pit on Sunnyside has been completed and the boring subcontractor was mobilized to begin boring under 31st street this week. The boring will be completed by middle of next week. The project is scheduled to be completed in July - weather and existing conditions permitting. However, the contractor is to submit a revised schedule this week – stay tuned.
