traffic-alert-Caroline-Street-Sewer-project-feature

Work will soon begin on the replacement of the sanitary sewer interceptor system in the upper Caroline Street corridor. On Monday, December 9, Caroline Street will be closed between Herndon and Germania Streets on a 24/7 basis to facilitate the start of the project. Crews with W.C. Spratt will begin working near the intersection of Ford Street.

Caroline Street will be reopened to traffic between December 24 – January 6. The roadway will be closed again on January 6 and remain closed for the duration of the project. Local traffic will be permitted to reach destinations within the road closure. The townhouses and apartments will be accessible from the Germania Street side of the work zone, but no thru traffic towards Ford Street will be permitted. Please adhere to the posted no parking signage and exercise caution within work zones. Drivers are encouraged to subscribe to www.fredericksburgalert.com, list name: “General Community Information -> Traffic Alerts” for updates on street closures.

The Heritage Trail in this area will remain open until January 6 and may experience temporary closures or detours after January 6, 2020, in which case notice will be provided. Trail users are encouraged to subscribe to www.fredericksburgalert.com, list name: “Parks and Recreation -> Park and Pool Updates” list to receive updates on the Heritage Trail. Please watch for posted signage and exercise caution near work zones.

This is a major project that involves the replacement of two existing sewer mains that are well past their useful lifespan and are in poor condition. Both of the existing mains will be replaced with a single 21” sanitary sewer main that is upsized to meet future sewer demands. The $1.7M project is part of a PPEA water/sewer infrastructure improvement contract with W.C. Spratt, Inc. and is anticipated to be completed by May of 2020. For questions about the project please contact the Department of Public Works at 540-372-1023. Please subscribe to City alerts at www.FredericksburgAlert.com.
