Goodyear Historic Sewer Project to begin
GOODYEAR, AZ – Goodyear’s Historic District may be charming, but its sewer system dates back to the 1940s when the city was first putting down roots.
The $1.1 million Goodyear Historic Sewer Project is about to begin, updating this part of the city’s critical infrastructure. More than 7,400 linear feet of copper piping will replace the old, brittle ductile iron materials originally installed decades ago.
"We're getting rid of the old stuff and replacing it with new materials that will last for decades," said project manager Steve Lampert.
Main line valves, fire hydrants and customer service connections will also be installed as part of this project. Sidewalks, driveways and other pavement disturbed during the work will be restored, as well, Lampert said.
The historic area targeted for the rehabilitative work is bordered on the west by Litchfield Road and Los Robles Drive to the east, San Xavier Avenue to the north and Western Avenue on the south.
Phoenix-based B & F Contracting, Inc. is responsible for the six-month project, which is expected to be completed in summer 2008.
