Installation of storm sewer as part of the Bauer Drain Relocation began this week. Concrete storm sewer and manhole structures were installed near the existing Bauer Drain just west of Mt. Pleasant Road. Construction is being performed from crane mats initially as the Contractor works through an area of soft soils. From here, crews will continue to install storm sewer to extend the relocated Drain west then south to the Drain’s existing crossing under Grimes Road. Additional staging areas and access to the work area has been provided by various property owners.
The relocated section of the Bauer Drain will not be put into service until its construction is complete. Progress on this reach has been slow due to weather delays, and will be weather dependent going forward. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Terry Belill at (989) 996-5228.
