The details below outline the project referred to as PS4048, which is located in the area between the corner of Norwich Street and Fifth Street to the corner of Townsend Street and Stonewall Street. This wastewater force main basin serves over 3,000 customers. This force main improvement project is required in order to continue serving the existing customer base and also prepare the way for future growth. This project is a required preliminary/complimentary project for the current SPLOST 2016 Phase I North Mainland improvements that are planned to open up current capacity needs and prepare for future growth.
Construction has begun. Routine updates to this briefing will be posted every two weeks following a planning meeting with BGJWSC, City of Brunswick and/or Glynn County staff plus contract construction personnel. Following future meetings, progress will be reported in advance to the next phase of construction.
TB Landmark Construction is currently connecting the section of new force main that has been installed from Pumpstation 4005, under the CSX/Norfolk Southern tracks, to the section of new force main that was directionally bored on 5th St. from Norwich St. to MLK St. Following that connection, TBL will then install the new 6’ diameter receiving manhole located adjacent to the north entrance to Norwich Commons. This manhole is constructed from solid High-Density Polyethylene plastic, rather than concrete, to ensure it withstands the corrosive conditions produced from the high wastewater flows it will receive. At this time, essentially all wastewater flow in the north mainland, east of I-9/Exit 38, will pass through this manhole. Once SPLOST 2016 Phases 2-4 are completed in several years, this flow will reduce dramatically.
The following roads are planned to be closed until December 18, 2017:
- 5th street will be closed between Norwich Street and Marion Street
- 5th Street will be closed between Brailsford Ave and Martin Luther King Jr Blvd Please use detour.
In addition, 5th Street between Norwich St and Hardee Street will be closed from Monday 11/6 to Friday 12/14 for sewer bypassing. Please be prepared to follow posted detour signs.
TB Landmark Construction will also be installing a 24″ Force Main via directional drill on 5th Street from Stonewall Street to Gordon Street from Monday 10/30 to Friday 11/10. 5th Street will be closed between these roads. Local Traffic Only.
