Village of Grafton 2020 Construction Update - 7/1/2020
Avenue Reconstruction –
The Village will be reconstructing the roadway of 1
Avenue (both northbound and southbound) from Highland Drive to Washington Street. The road is closed to through traffic for the duration of the project, until late August. The BIKE LANE is also closed, and bicycle traffic should utilize the downtown loop of the Interurban Trail instead. The contractor began work in June with excavation for the bio-swales in the grass median. The bio-swales will help filter out contaminants in storm water before the water further enters the storm system piping. Work this week continues with old stone base removals, preparing the roadbed and placement of new base materials.
Avenue Lift Station –
The Village is replacing the sanitary sewage lift station on 17
Avenue near Nancy Lynn Court. The contractor began work in June with updates to the existing sewer main. This project is anticipated to take several months to complete.
WWTP New Headworks Facility –
The Village is constructing a new facility along the back of the Wastewater Treatment Plant property, adjacent to Falls Road. The headworks facility separates out the large particles before sending the liquids for further treatment, and will replace a portion of the old original 1970’s plant. Excavation for the new building continues.
