Highway 67 Sewer Relocation Redmond Rd. & Main St.

Project Description

Over 80,000 vehicles per day drive along Highway 67 through Jacksonville, Arkansas traveling to and from the State’s capital city. The stretch of highway has become locally infamous due to the regularly recurring traffic congestion at the beginning and end of each work day. In 2014 the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department (AHTD) began taking the necessary steps to widen that section of highway to six lanes. This project involved the relocation of multiple sanitary sewer mains along the highway in the area of Redmond Road and Main Street. As part of this project, Hawkins-Weir Engineers assisted the Jacksonville Wastewater Utility in obtaining project cost reimbursement from AHTD for design, construction, construction engineering, easements, daily inspection, and regulatory review fees. The project consisted of the construction of approximately 1,160 linear-feet of 18-inch PVC gravity sewer line, 590 linear-feet of 12-inch PVC gravity sewer line, 520 linear-feet of 8-inch PVC gravity sewer line, 70 linear-feet of 6-inch PVC gravity sewer line, sewer service connections, road bores, railroad bores, manholes, and appurtenances. The project also included the abandonment and/or removal of approximately 3,215 linear-feet of existing gravity sewer line and manholes.
