As part of the upcoming Locke Street South improvements, The City of Hamilton has scheduled sewer lateral preparation and lining in the area as follows: Herkimer Street, Hunter Street, Pine Street, Melbourne Street, Charlton Avenue, and Jackson Street approximately 150m east and 150m west of Locke Street South.
Crews will be moving as work progresses so disruption to a specific location will only be for a few days
Schedule – Started Nov. 1, 2017 and will continue for approximately 5-6 weeks. Work will take place daily from 7:00am to 7:00pm. Rush hour traffic disruptions on Locke Street South will be avoided.
Nature of Work – Sewer lateral preparation and lining. Small trucks with quiet generators running. A glue like odour may be detected in the area during the lining process.
The City of Hamilton has a contract with LiquiForce Services Inc. to rehabilitate the existing sewer lateral (public portion only). The sewer will be rehabilitated using a Trenchless Technology sewer lining method so there will be very few, if any, excavations required to complete this work. To facilitate this “No Dig” method, some temporary restrictions to street parking may be required, as such, your patience and co-operation will be appreciated.
