The City of Natchitoches advises the public that City Utility Department crews began earlier this week to make spot repairs to the existing gravity sewer line that runs underneath the eastbound lane of St. Clair Avenue from Williams Avenue to East Fifth Street.
Once the sewer repair work is completed, the construction contractor, Williams Equipment Services LLC of Anacoco, Louisiana, will resume construction of the new cement-treated base course and asphalt surfacing on this street, as well as on the other remaining streets that are part of the City’s FY 2021-22 Phase 1 Street Rehabilitation project. These streets include Mayfield Street and Simmons Alley, as well as parts of Amulet Street, Breda Street, and Peninsula Drive.
Although work on this project has been delayed by recurring wet weather conditions and subgrade soil issues, as well as underground utility issues, it is anticipated that the project will be completed within the next 30 days.
For more information, please contact the Office of the Mayor at (318) 352-2772.
