Yale Campus/Trumbull Street Area Sewer Separation Projects
- Phase 1A – Trumbull Street Area
Construction for the Sewer Separation Project in the vicinity of Trumbull Street will continue into 2013. Once completed, the project will have separated approximately 140 acres of storm water from the sanitary sewer system.
TRUMBULL STREET AREA
PIPE JACKING COMPLETED ON TRUMBULL STREET
The Twin 48" Pipes have been completed under the congested Trumbull Street, Whitney Avenue and Temple Street intersections. Over the next few weeks, work will continue in various locations inside the piping to fully direct the storm water flow away from the combined sewer piping and into the dedicated new storm drainage piping. This re-direction of flows will free capacity in the combined sanitary sewer to reduce combined sewer overflows into the Mill River during major storm events. While additional pipe installation will continue along a portion of Whalley Avenue and Temple Street South of Trumble Street, this milestone marks completion of 120 acres of urban sewer separation.
TRUMBULL STREET TWO-WAY TRAFFIC TO BE RESTORED
FEBRUARY 6, 2013 BETWEEN WHITNEY AVENUE TO ORANGE STREET
Trumble Street between Orange Street and Whitney Avenue will be restored to two-way traffic flow on February 6, 2013. Localized construction areas and detours will continue to be used for the remaining restoration work.
PIPE WORK SHIFTS TO TEMPLE STREET & WHITNEY AVENUE
With the completion of pipe work on Trumbull Street, the focus will shift to installation of smaller diameter pipes on Temple Street and Whitney Avenue. Pipe installation on these 2 streets will continue into springtime. Lane closures will be required to install the piping.
Final Restoration will continue through the first half of 2013 and include pavement restoration, repairs to disturbed areas of concrete sidewalks and tree plantings.
Please drive, bicycle or walk cautiously and allow extra time to reach your destination.
Thank you for your patience as we work to improve the environment for future generations.
