29th Street Sanitary Sewer Project Nears Completion
Mayor Pro Tem and District 3 City Commissioner Hilda Salinas recently updated McAllen residents on the status of the 29th Street Sanitary Sewer Project. Watch this video clip, produced by the McAllen Cable Network.
The south 29th St. Sewer Project is in its final stages pending only a few important items. The installation of a deep manhole at the intersection of Ebony Avenue and S. 29th St. is expected to be completed during the last week of March. Also, the installation of a new 8-inch waterline from Galveston Avenue to Business Highway 83 is scheduled to begin the first week of April and last about a week.
Once these items are completed, a new asphalt overlay of 29th St. will be laid from Galveston Avenue to Business Highway 83 with a half-street overlay from Galveston Avenue south to US Expressway 83.
In closing out this project, the existing lift station at 29th St. & Ebony Ave. will finally be demolished and removed, allowing for gravity flow of sewer without the need for electricity or maintenance costs. General Site clean-up will be the last part of the contractor's task assuring residents and city staff that area is left free of debris, equipment, materials.
