Part of Old Highway 67 to close for month for final leg of sewer work

A section of Old Highway 67 in Woolmarket will be closed to traffic for a month beginning Monday so city contractors can install the final sewer lines in a year-long $4.8 million project.

The last phase of construction, which covers three-quarters of a mile, will be taking place on Old Highway 67 from near the Woolmarket Road intersection to Wren Place. Work is expected to be completed Dec. 23.

Motorists should use Woolmarket Road and Shriners Boulevard as detour routes. Detour signs will mark the routes, residents who live immediately near the work area will have access to their homes.

Workers will be installing eight-inch sewer lines 10 to 12 feet below the roadway. When completed next month, this phase of sewer work in Woolmarket, known as Woolmarket Plantation sewer project, will have seen 27,000 feet of sewer lines installed.
