East Main Street Sewer Rehabilitation Project

The upcoming East Main Street Sewer Rehabilitation Project will invest in upgrades for the community’s sewer infrastructure on East Main Street in Carrboro from the intersection with Rosemary Street to the intersection with Greensboro Street.

The project will include replacing approximately 2,000 feet of sewer line, replacing eight manholes, installing two new manholes, and point repairs at two locations in the project area.

Construction on this project is expected to begin in January 2022 and be completed by June 2022. That timeline could be extended by weather or other factors.

Normal work hours during the project will be Sunday through Friday 8 p.m. to 6 a.m.

Traffic will be impacted during the construction hours with a signed detour established. All travel lanes will be open at the end of each work period with no lingering impacts to vehicle traffic expected.

We understand this project will have an impact and apologize for any inconveniences associated with the project. The investment in the community’s infrastructure will help ensure OWASA continues to safely convey and treat the community’s wastewater and mitigate sewer blockages that can be costly to fix and have a negative impact on the environment.
