Monterey hopes to have a sewer rehabilitation project completed by the middle of next month.
Mayor Bill Wiggins said crews must finish the project by January 12.
“The main thrust of that particular project is to rehab aging sewer lines in Monterey, which were first installed in the 1960’s,” Wiggins said. “The most recent update I’ve got from the engineer is that they are moving along nicely and on schedule.”
The $373,000 project began August 15th. Wiggins said Monterey used a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) to install about 2,800 linear feet of sewer line.
“We’re trying to address some things before they get troublesome,” Wiggins said. “There’s several spots in town where you can see construction occurring. Right now, they’re on Industrial Drive and there will be a section over by the Dairy Queen. There will also be some activity on West Crawford Avenue and maybe a couple of other spots.”
The Monterey Board of Mayor and Aldermen awarded the project bid to J&H Construction in June.
