BC Drainage replaces sewer line
Maintenance workers were busy in Bridge City this week at the corner of Osborne and Bower streets replacing a sewer line which is the main line going to the sewer plant. The old line was 20 inches around and the new line will be increased to 24 inches. The city is going to work on the line through this week.
The road will be reopened Friday in preparation for the first day of school on Monday. They will attempt to finish the project on weekends and days when the schools are closed to avoid traffic issues.
The line improvements are due to funds received as a result of Hurricane Ike. According to Jerry Jones, city manager, the city has more than 50 projects they are working on currently.
Bids for the next phase of the many projects will be before city council in the upcoming meetings.
