CFPUA's Northeast Interceptor Project Continues

CFPUA’s work on its Northeast Interceptor (NEI) Rehabilitation Phase 2 project continues to progress along Greenville Loop Road. This project includes rehabilitating sections of the existing 20” sewer force main between Pump Station 35 at Bradley Creek to Pump Station 34 at Hewletts Creek.

The work consists of the cleaning, CCTV, and pipe bursting of approximately 5,139 linear feet of 20-inch ductile iron pipe and replacement with 20-inch Fusible PVC sewer force main along Greenville Loop Road.

The site map linked below shows the areas where the work is being conducted. Work began – and was completed – in Area 5. CFPUA’s contractor is currently working in Area 4 and it will continue through the month of November. Work will then shift to Area 3 and so on.

We are experiencing some high traffic volumes during peak commute times on Greenville Loop Road. Due to the nature of the work, it must be conducted on tight sections of road, making flagging operations necessary.

The flagging operations will shift eastward in as each area is completed, however, traffic will still be slow in spots on Greenville Loop Road as the work continues.

To take pressure off the roadway, we ask those who use Greenville Loop Road as a pass-through to take an alternate route during these peak travel times. Five minutes of extra travel could save a motorist as many as 15 more minutes in traffic delays.

We also ask everyone to put down their cell phones as they travel through the work zones. It is understandable that they are being used while drivers are being stopped by our flaggers. We just ask that they are put down when the vehicle is in motion.
