Work has begun on the City of Struthers, Ohio’s southeast sanitary-sewer rehabilitation project, according to the Youngstown Vindicator.

Residents could experience interruptions in sewer service. They will be notified first by the contractor, said Mayor Terry Stocker.

The work includes pipe bursting, which means to enlarge the pipes; relining pipes; and clearing sewer easements.

The $377,600 project is being paid for by an Ohio Public Works Commission grant of $260,544; $76,086 from the county; and $40,970 from the city, said Stocker.

Utilicon Corp. of Cleveland is the contractor.

Work began Wednesday with pipe bursting and relining on Clingan Road from Babic Street to Struthers Road and will continue until Sept. 23.

Between Monday and Thursday next week, the contractor will clear easements along Yellow Creek between Grimm Heights and Parkway on the east and between Sells Avenue and Hopewell Drive on the west.

From Sept. 24 to Oct. 12, the contractor will do pipe bursting and relining from Grimm Heights to Parkcliff Avenue.

Relining will be done in the areas of Hopewell, Parkway, Sells and Wetmore from Sept. 28 through Oct. 7.

Bursting and relining will be done from Katherine to Lewis streets Oct. 13 to 16.

The contractor will repair pavement and do site restoration Oct. 19 to 30.

The schedule could be affected by the weather, Stocker said.
