Alden Way Storm Sewer Rehabilitation Project 

Project Updates

July 11, 2022

A new liner is being fabricated for installation on Tuesday, 7/19. Please note that the schedule is weather dependent. Please see the mailed public notice for further information including road closure. 

July 5, 2022

The project will be delayed several days. The contractor is waiting for a new liner to be fabricated. An updated schedule will be provided once the liner is available for installation. Alden Way will be open to the traveling public until that time.

June 30, 2022

The contractor was unable to complete the liner installation yesterday due to a manufacturer defect in the liner. Today the crew will clean up from yesterday’s unanticipated setback and will prepare a new liner for installation on Tuesday, July 5th. Note Alden Way will remain closed through the weekend in an effort to keep the immediate work zone secure. For more information please see official mailed notice. 

June 28, 2022

The contractor will not be working today due to the overnight rains and subsequent rise in creek levels. Work is anticipated to resume June 29th. Note the new CIPP liner installation will take one work day and will be followed by restoration of the disturbed areas. Work is anticipated to be complete by the end of the week. Thank you for your patience with the project.

June 6, 2022

The original start date was anticipated for mid-June. Although, the contractor has rescheduled for a June 27th start date

Project Background

This project consists of the rehabilitation of an existing 54” diameter corrugated metal pipe (CMP) that conveys Stonybrook Creek beneath Alden Way and ultimately to the Mississippi River. An inspection following the installation of the Craigbrook storm sewer interceptor and the Stonybrook Outfall Stabilization Project, completed in 2019, showed the bottom of the culvert beginning to corrode. If left as-is, over time the bottom of the culvert can become so deteriorated that pipe failure can occur. In addition to negative environmental impacts, such a failure has the potential to damage the adjacent creek banks, the roadway and the recently completed bank stabilization improvements.

More information can be found in the official mailed public notice or you can call 763-572-3554 with questions.
