Tentatively Monday, May 25, 2020, the city’s contractor Wharton-Smith will begin the decommission and demolition for two existing lift stations. The two stations are on E. South Street on a city owned parcel that is close proximity to the westbound lanes for SR-408. The decommission and demolition for the older existing lift stations are a part of the project scope for the city's new Lift Station One. We expect to complete demolition in four weeks.
In the last week of April, Wharton-Smith began preparing the parcel and staging equipment for the demolition. Once the project begins, constituents will notice an increase in activity within the area. Wharton-Smith will use heavy equipment to safely and methodically demolish the lift stations. The contractor will make a conscious effort to avoid working on weekends, nights, or using special vibratory equipment during this phase of the project. We do not anticipate the use of overly noisy equipment. However, there is potential for an increase in noise during project hours. Project hours are 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Please know adverse weather and unforeseen circumstances can create delays or prolong the project.
