Work anticipated in the next three weeks on Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District’s Project Clear in Brentwood:
- DC-02 & DC-03 Relief Sewer Phase 2: Excavation of the tunnel from the bore pit in the northwest corner of Brentwood Park is complete and the pipe has been installed in the tunnel. The space between the pipe and tunnel has been filled with grout. Last week’s heavy rains filled the excavation with material, which is currently being cleaned out. The contractor will work to finalize this connection over the next two weeks, which will be followed by restoration of the area disturbed in Brentwood Park. The completion of asphalt paving work is weather dependent and may not occur until Spring.
- Deer Creek Sanitary Tunnel – The Tunnel Boring Machine excavating the main tunnel is currently excavating beneath the Galleria parking lot and will continue excavating north west until the machine crosses Clayton Road.
- Deer Creek Sanitary Tunnel – The contractor continues excavating a shaft from the surface down to the tunnel at the site near Brazeau and Suburban Tracks. The shaft excavation through the soil is complete. The shaft excavation through the rock, which is being performed using drill and blast methods, will continue for five more weeks.
- Deer Creek Sanitary Tunnel – The contractor is continuing with drill and blast excavation of the tunnel, which connects the shaft located near Breckenridge Industrial Court and Manchester Road with the main tunnel. This work will continue for several months.
