Traffic on Lunn Road near is reduced to one lane as crews tackle a sewer project.
City Engineer Ken Mikula said the project will replace about 230 feet of sanitary sewer line on Lunn to alleviate backups and flooding.
Mikula said like Walnut Drive last summer and fall were traced to an undersized, deteriorated section of sanitary sewer on Lunn Road. The $120,000 project will increase the size of the line from 8 inches to 12 inches.
City officials so it wouldn't cause traffic back-ups on the street, which already gets clogged just before and after high school hours, but the contractor was available to start now.
Work started March 21. A temporary traffic light has been installed to handle traffic sharing one lane on the road.
The project is expected to be done by the end of April.
