There will be added hours for construction work in Ridgefield on the Water Pollution Control Authority’s Wastewater Facilities Upgrade project. Beginning Monday, a second shift will be added from 3pm to 11pm. The first shift is 7am to 3pm. The added hours are meant to reduce the length of disruption in the upcoming work areas and expedite construction.
Police will direct traffic during all work hours.
Next week, force main installation will continue along Limekiln Road between Lee Road and Linden Road. Limekiln will be closed in that area during the extended construction hours. Installation will start between Linden Road and Nursery Road. Limekiln will be closed in that area when the work starts.
The project includes installation of 13,600 feet of new 8-inch diameter underground force main piping from the Route 7 Pump Station to the South Street Wastewater Treatment Facility. The existing Route 7 facility will be demolished and replaced with a new pump station in the same location. The existing Wastewater Treatment Facility there will be decommissioned and demolished.
