Riverside Rd. Water Main Replacementhttp://www.sua.com/Riverside_water_main_replacement
Construction Period: December 27, 2016 through March 13, 2017
Project Description – SUA’s contractor, Felix Associates of Florida, Inc., will install a 6-inch
diameter ductile iron pipe (DIP) potable water main pipeline westward along the north side of
Riverside Road from the east side of Anchorage Drive to the end of the road. Please note that this
project will include the crossing of Anchorage Drive. The new water main will replace the existing
4-inch and 6-inch water main that is approaching the end of its useful life.
Construction Method – The new pipeline will be installed by open-cut method adjacent to the
existing 50-year old water main that is to be abandoned in place. The contractor will excavate a
trench approximately 3 feet deep and install the new water main with fire hydrants, disinfect and
test the new water main and then transfer the individual water services from the old main to the
newly installed water main. Please note that there will be a brief interruption in service during the
transition from the old water main to the new water main. Once all the services are on the new
water main, the existing water main will be filled with grout and abandoned in place. After
abandonment, the contractor will remove his equipment and fully restore all areas impacted by
Construction zone – All work will be done within road rights of way and dedicated easements.
Construction materials including some fill material and small rock will be staged along the
Vehicular and pedestrian traffic – There will be sidewalk, traffic lane and driveway closures on
Anchorage Drive and along Riverside Road, but the construction approach will allow these to be
relatively brief. All driveways will be open during non-working hours and access to the driveways
will be allowed where safety allows. Signs and barricades will be positioned as required, and SUA
contractors have been instructed to secure all work areas to implement traffic control measures
designed to minimize risk and public inconvenience.
Hours of construction – Daylight hours on weekdays, minimal work on Saturdays, no Sunday or
Equipment to be used – Pickup trucks, backhoes, and compactors. Periodically, there will be
front end loaders, dump trucks and flatbed vehicles, and depending upon ground water conditions,
it may be necessary to operate a dewatering pump around the clock for a few days.
Noise – The contractor must comply with local noise ordinances. We appreciate your patience
during this critically important construction activity. We will post information on our web site at
