Depending on the weather, Reeves Contracting will start the last phase of the downtown storm drainage improvements at 7 p.m. tomorrow night (Sunday, March 2). Due to the volume of daytime traffic on Church Street, work during this period will be at night  between the hours of 7 p.m. and 5 a.m. The initial challenge will be to cross the intersection at East Trinity Place. At times, traffic on East Trinity will be reduced to one two-way lane with traffic control provided by police officers and flaggers. This will be adjusted as work progresses.

Once across East Trinity, Reeves will lay drainage pipe in Church Street up to the area just north of the entrance to the parking lot at 320 Church Street. During this period, the 300 block of Church Street will be open to local traffic only at night between 7 pm and 5 am.  Access to businesses and parking will be maintained during the evenings. Church Street will be open as usual during the day.  A flyer is attached describing the work and suggested detour routes.

This phase of the work should take about four weeks to complete. We appreciate everyone’s patience and good will during this project.

Weather permitting, Reeves Contracting will begin by installing a short section of water line on Church Street near East Maple Street at 7 pm this evening (Feb. 25). Water service in this area will be shut off at 2 am for a couple of hours during the work.

Construction of the storm drainage line at the intersection of Church Street and East Trinity has been interrupted due to a conflict with a high pressure gas line.  Atlanta Gas Light is planning to raise the gas line to allow installation of the storm line to continue.

Weather permitting, Reeves Contracting plans to start installing the new storm sewer on Church Street north of East Maple early this week.  The new storm sewer will extend from East Maple north on Church Street towards East Trinity Place.

Businesses on Church Street between East Trinity Place and East Maple Street should notify patrons that once work begins this week, traffic will be limited to one-way in the southbound direction, so they will have to approach this area from East Trinity Place.

Due to the location of the new storm line, on-street parking on Church Street will be prohibited in the area of construction. A schematic plan illustrating temporary traffic changes can be downloaded here.

The photo shows Reeves’ construction team installing the new storm line across East Howard Avenue earlier last week.  This line intercepts an old granite rubble and terra cotta storm sewer that crosses the CSX railroad and heads cross country under several properties on the east side of Church Street.

Reeves Contracting  will start laying storm drainage pipe across East Trinity Place tomorrow, installing new inlets on both sides of the street and working its way to the eastern end of the project at Decatur Fire Station No. 1.

Reeves will use lane closures and short detours in order to keep East Trinity Place open for two-way traffic, so expect traffic delays.

Reeves Contracting  has installed about 200 linear feet of new 48” storm drainage pipe through the parking lot at 215 Church Street. Next week, Reeves will continue work towards Decatur Fire Station No. 1 (shown in the background of the photo below).  Crossing East Trinity Place and installing new inlets at Fire Station No. 1 will be the next big challenge.

Once the new storm line is in place at the firehouse, Reeves will begin installing a new storm line and inlets on Church Street.

Both East Maple Street and Church Street are open to regular traffic at present.  Once work begins on the new Church Street storm line, traffic will be limited to one-way in the southbound direction where construction activity is taking place.
