Pipeline Construction Company Reaches Out to Residents
Kana Pipeline was recently awarded the Chapman Avenue Sewer & Road Reconstruction Project by the City of Fullerton for $1.6 million, as the lowest qualified bidder for this public works contract. Approximately 3,400 LF of existing 6” vitrified clay pipe (VCP) main will be removed and replaced with new VCP sewer main and sewer lateral reconnections, which will be installed alongside several residential streets. The pipeline installation project will take place in the Chapman area, west of Basque, just south of Malvern Avenue, and north of Commonwealth Avenue between Bookhurst Rd. and Euclid St.
Many residents will be affected by this construction, along Diana Place, Elizabeth Way and King Place, both just north and south of Chapman Avenue, as well as part of Jacaranda Place, between Diana Pl and Elizabeth Wy. For this reason Kana Pipeline’s Project Manager, Kenneth Cornell, is working to organize a positive community outreach meeting, tentatively set for Saturday morning, May 21st, 2011 in Adlena Park, the closest park in proximity to the future construction zone. “The purpose of this meeting,” explained Cornell, “is to make a personal connection with the residents, face to face, and exchange important information about the proposed construction process and address any concerns residents may have that may not have been taken into consideration.” While construction work will be heavy and is not always a welcomed sight, Kana Pipeline wants residents to be well-informed and understand the long-term benefits of this new sewer pipeline main to their neighborhood. Essentially, Cornell wants to maintain open lines of communication throughout the construction progress, working together with residents while maintaining the productivity and safety in everyone’s best interest so that this project can be completed timely and safely. Cornell is looking forward to a meeting and is hoping to gain positive feedback from the residents.
Cornell plans to address the proposed schedule and layout of how and where Kana Pipeline plans to start construction and provide residents with an opportunity to voice their concerns. Pipeline installation will cause some traffic and other delays as construction crews work to manage traffic control and pedestrian traffic throughout the affected streets, intersections and driveways. Construction work hours will take place during the normal workweek, Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. No weekend work is expected to take place at this time.
Kana Pipeline’s Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) department will start off the project Monday, May 23rd, by potholing and locating the existing underground utility lines to ensure existing utility elevations are confirmed and that there are no unknown conflicts with the proposed 8” VCP sewer main installation. Construction is scheduled to be completed by September 15, 2011. Cornell reminds everyone that Kana welcomes any communication from residents and officials alike, in efforts to reduce the typical inconveniences generally caused by construction activity to existing neighborhoods.
