The Water Authority contractors are continuing construction on an 11-month project to eliminate sewer odors and improve sewer flow on Albuquerque's west side. The Yucca Sewer Interceptor Project will replace sewer lines and services on 58th Street from Avalon Road on the north to Central Avenue on the south, on 59th Street from Central Avenue on the north to Churchill Road on the south, and on Churchill Road from 59th Street to Old Coors Drive. Residents and businesses on 59th Street and Churchill Road south of Central Avenue will also have their water lines and services replaced. The impacted roadways will be repaved from curb to curb, and new fire hydrants will be installed. A project map can be found here.
The $6.5 million project, which got under way in November of 2016, will include installation of vortex manholes, which help contain sewer gases underground, and the realignment of a major sewer collector line that now runs along Yucca Drive. Construction is expected to last through September of this year.
People with questions about the project, or people who would like to receive regular construction updates, can contact Patti Watson at (505) 245-3134 or email@example.com.
Regular work hours will be 7 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday, although the contractor may work longer hours or on weekends if needed.
