The Manor Drive Water Improvement project will replace a failing, 60-year-old water line in the Manor Drive right of way. The work will be done between E. Streetsboro Road to the cul-de-sac at the southerly end of the road. The waterline has experienced a number of breaks causing disruptions in service. In addition to replacing the water line, the City will provide a new storm sewer system. When the waterline and storm sewer work is completed, the road will be repaired and resurfaced.
Project Update 8-1-2017:
Due to resident concerns regarding impacts to trees on Manor Drive, this project has been postponed.
The City hired Davey Resource Group to provide a tree study and review the report regarding the possible impacts to trees on private property. In addition, the City requested the contractor to provide cost adjustments to construct the project with smaller/lighter equipment, using alternate alignments for the proposed water main and storm sewers.
As a result of the Davey Resource study and the revised costs from the contractor being considerably higher than expected, the City has decided to re-design and rebid the project in the Fall, 2017. By avoiding sole source costs and rebidding the project, better pricing due to the competitive bidding process is expected.
By re-designing and rebidding the project, the City will be able to make adjustments to the plans and project budget in an effort to meet both the City's goals and residents requests.
The revised schedule for the project is anticipated to be:
October/November, 2017: Rebid of Contract
February - April, 2018: Construction of new water main and storm sewers
May/June, 2018: Resurface roadway and project completion
