A large, disruptive sewer rehabilitation project is coming to a Melinda Drive this May.
Affected streets will include Abby Lane, Fisher Trail, Meadowvale Drive, Melinda Court, Melinda Drive and Nancy Lane. The county says the project is necessary to help improve DeKalb’s watershed system.
Phase 2 of the Melinda Drive Sewer Line Rehabilitation Project will start May 18 and involve crews installing cured-in-place pipe. A press release says the county plans to rehabilitate 5,000 linear feet of aging sewer lines. The project should wrap up in August, barring weather delays. “Normal construction hours will be from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding major holidays,” a press release from the county says. “An increase in construction-related noise and traffic during work hours should be expected. Insituform, working on behalf of DeKalb County, is the authorized contractor. All workers will be wearing proper identification and driving marked vehicles.”
The county is hosting a public information meeting via Zoom on Tuesday, March 14, at 6:30 p.m. to discuss the project with residents. Here’s the Zoom link: https://dekalbcountyga.zoom.us/j/89206863708
