Station Street to close in early August for sewer work
LAKE PLACID – Station Street will close in August as construction workers connect a sewer line, a part of a $3.2 million trunk sewer line project.
Lake Placid Public Works Superintendent Brad Hathaway said Station Street will be closed on Aug. 4 and 5.
“It should hopefully be done on the 4th,” Hathaway said. “They’re tying one manhole to another, about 40 to 60 feet of pipe.”
This is the last sewer line to tie into the new trunk sewer line, Hathaway said; however, workers will not finish the job until October. Kubricky Construction will work on dam removal and later put down a top coat of asphalt. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has begun the river restoration of Lower Mill Pond, according to Carl Schwartz with U.S. Fish and Wildlife.
Hathaway said workers still have to remove the Lower Mill Pond Dam.
“There’s a lot of work left to be done down there,” Hathaway said. “Only half the dam was chiseled away. There is still 7 to 8 feet left of dam to remove.”
At the end of August, Kubricky will begin paving a topcoat layer of asphalt on Sentinel Road and the intersection with Station Street.
“In September a majority of it should be done, and minor things in October,” Hathaway said.
The trunk sewer line project focused on removing two 100-year-old clay sewer lines and replacing them with one new, 30-inch plastic pipe.
