Construction to improve a sanitary sewer manhole will require the temporary complete closure of the Edson and Wilson Avenue intersection, one block east of Finley Rd., for approximately four weeks beginning June 25.
Posted detours will be in place. The completion of the project and subsequent reopening of the intersection is anticipated for the week of August 6, depending on weather.
The objective of the work is to alleviate sewer odors and reduce corrosion within the structure. The project is designed to eliminate odorous and corrosive gases by using the sewage’s own energy to oxidize odorous gases. This process will decrease unpleasant odors and will help to extend the life of the improved infrastructure.
Traffic will not be allowed thru the intersection during construction. Residents along Wilson Avenue and on Edson Avenue will maintain access to their driveways and have received mailed notification of the project details. Postal and garbage service will not be adversely affected, however some delay to the regular schedule may occur. PACE bus service will be rerouted.
Once work is completed the intersection will be kept closed for a short period to allow Village crews to patch the removed portions of the pavement. After that work is completed, the Edson/Wilson intersection will reopen.
