Dr. Andrew J. Brown Avenue and Sutherland Avenue to Be Affected
INDIANAPOLIS – Citizens Energy Group has begun sewer rehabilitation on a large section of sewer that conveys millions of gallons of wastewater from the northeast side of Indianapolis. The original sewer was installed in 1990 and has begun to show areas of deterioration.
The work is taking place in the area of Dr. Andrew J. Brown Avenue from near 34th Street turning southwest to Sutherland Avenue. Aboveground bypass pipe is visible and will cause intermittent lane restrictions on Dr. Andrew J. Brown and Sutherland Avenues. The bypass will consist of large, black heavy-duty pipes that will sit above ground for the duration of the project to avoid extended service disruptions to area residents and businesses.
The Monon Trail will also be impacted, but at no time will it be closed. Trail users will see signage urging caution and directing them along the path in a safe manner. A minor detour at Sutherland Avenue will occur, as heavy equipment will be crossing the Monon north of this location. Flaggers will be on site during the crossings to ensure trail users are aware of the work and able to navigate the detour.
This project is expected to be complete by the end of September and will cost approximately $2.1 million.
