Raymond Drive Sanitary Sewer Project Begins Week of June 27

Lane Closures on Raymond Drive and River Road In Effect Through August

Work to line the sanitary sewer main along Raymond Drive and River Road is slated to begin the week of June 27, pending weather and unforeseen circumstances. Due to the nature of the work, lane closures along Raymond Drive and River Road will be in effect throughout the project, which is expected to last until the end of August 2016.

To accommodate this work, the southbound curb lane of Raymond Drive will be closed to traffic from just north of Queensgreen Circle to the intersection of Brookdale Drive/River Road. The southbound curb lane of River Road will be closed from River Road’s intersection with Raymond Drive south to just before Millennium Lane. Two-way traffic will be maintained throughout construction. Motorists should use caution in this area and find alternate routes as necessary.

As part of the Raymond Drive Sanitary Sewer Project, Naperville’s Water Utility has contracted with Insituform Technologies USA to rehabilitate almost 3,000 linear feet of sanitary sewer main and nine manholes along Raymond Drive using cured-in-place pipe (CIPP). CIPP is an innovative technology that allows for lining existing sanitary sewer equipment versus expensive excavation of the pipeline, which would also cause damage to the existing landscape and extensive traffic disruptions.

No interruptions in water or sewer service are anticipated to residents and businesses in the impacted area. Road ramps will be installed in certain areas so that drivers may safely cross the bypass pumping lines at street intersections and driveways in the work zone, including the main entrance to the Arbors of Brookdale.
