The City of Brighton Utilities Department has kicked off work on its 2020 Manhole Rehabilitation project. The $397,000 project will include the rehabilitation of 214 manholes as part of the continuation of an on-going rehabilitation plan. The project takes place west of 11th Avenue, from Bromley Lane to WCR 2.5 (click here for a map of the rehabilitation project). The manholes are estimated at 50 years old, which over time, need to be rehabilitated to secure structural integrity.
The project consists of patching deteriorated concrete, putting a barrier on the manholes so they can’t deteriorate and placing a multi-layer polymer on the manholes for structural integrity. The new product is expected to last 100 years.
The work will take place primarily in neighborhood streets, with some work on major roadways like Bromley Lane and Bridge Street (traffic control will be present on those roads). Notifications will be sent to residents who will be directly impacted by the project. No service disruptions are anticipated.
The project is expected to be complete on Wednesday, Dec. 31.
