Sewer Rehabilitation Project Near Monon Trail

By Daniel Considine on 6/29/17 9:29 AM

Bypass Piping Visible to Monon Trail Users Near East 34th Street and Sutherland Avenue

INDIANAPOLIS – This week, Citizens Energy Group will begin work on a severely deteriorated section of sewer that will likely spark the curiosity of some Monon Trail users in the northeast corridor of the city. In most cases, sewer rehabilitation projects are minimally disruptive, but neighbors may experience some road restrictions. In the areas where crews are working, signage will be posted as well as any necessary detour routes.

So as not to disrupt service to customers in the area, this sewer rehabilitation project will require bypass piping to divert sewage flow from the pipe being rehabilitated to a downstream manhole. The bypass will consist of large, black heavy-duty pipes that will sit above ground for the duration of the project. These pipes will be visible to trail-users and will run parallel to Sutherland Avenue from approximately East 34th Street to approximately Winthrop Avenue. 

 This project is expected to take approximately two months to complete. During this time, the Monon Trail will remain accessible.
