Email from Zach Weigel:
I wanted to give you an update on the construction schedule for the Charbonneau Utility Repair work as I am sure many of you are wondering why construction has not started yet. Recently, the City’s contractor requested that the construction schedule be delayed a couple of months to better align with their pipe lining subcontractor’s schedule. Pipe lining is very specialized work, which is becoming more and more popular as a solution to repairing older pipelines. As a result, scheduling contractors that specialize in pipe lining is becoming difficult.
Instead of starting the construction work now and then waiting until the pipe lining contractor is available, the City has requested the Contractor delay the start of construction to better align with the pipe lining schedule. This will lessen the amount of total construction time and impacts to the residents.
I had been waiting to send a project update until the details of the construction schedule change are resolved with the Contractor, but I realize that we are almost two weeks beyond the original start date. As soon as the construction schedule is resolved, I will send you an update and provide updated notice to residents within the construction areas. I apologize for any inconvenience.
