The City is installing a force main sewer system on Dublin Road between Emerald Parkway and Glenaire Drive. The project constructs 2.5 miles of 16” force main sanitary sewer underneath Dublin Road and a new pump station across from Glenaire Drive.
One-way traffic will be maintained for the majority of the project. Drivers should expect detours within the project limits until early November 2022. Detour routes will be published the week ahead of any traffic changes.
Approximate schedule for Phase 4: Sept. 26 – Nov 10.
- Force main installation between Emerald Parkway and Glenaire Drive
- Thursday, Dec. 15 – Traffic will be flagged temporarily on Dublin Road across from Glenaire Drive for a crane lift.
Completion Date – April 2023
The pump station will not be constructed until next year.
The past sequence of construction is below for reference.
Phase 1: Emerald Parkway to Brand Road, northbound traffic detoured to Coffman Road. Approximate schedule June 8 – July 19.
Phase 1A: Beginning July 18, northbound Dublin Road will be closed to traffic at the Brand Road roundabout for five days. The detour will be west on Brand Road, north on Muirfield Drive, east on Glick Road. Eastbound Brand Road traffic will be able to travel south at the roundabout but not north.
Phase 2: Beginning July 25 through Aug. 11. Dublin Road will be closed to northbound traffic between Brand Road and Bellaire Drive for approximately four weeks. Northbound traffic will be detoured west on Brand Road, north on Muirfield Drive, and east on Glick Road. Southbound traffic will be maintained on Dublin Road.
Phase 3: Beginning Aug. 22 through Sept. 26. Dublin Road will be closed to southbound traffic between River Forest Road and Brandonway Drive/Bellaire Avenue for approximately four weeks. Southbound traffic will be detoured west on Glick Road, south on Muirfield Drive and east on Brand Road. Northbound traffic will be maintained on Dublin Road.
As part of the sanitary sewer improvements recommended in the Deer Run Sewer Modeling Report (2012), the City of Dublin is preparing construction plans for installing a wet weather sanitary pump station (lift station) and approximately 11,000 linear feet of force main (sanitary sewer) along Dublin Road between Glenaire Drive and Emerald Parkway. Our design consultant, EMH&T, is currently performing field surveying and has started on preliminary design.
