Phase One construction set April 13

Construction on Tracy’s $3.2 million infrastructure project is targeted for an April 13 start.
Consulting engineer Chris Larson, I&S Group, told the Tracy City Council Monday, that the general contractor planned to begin excavations for a new sewer line on that date.  Work will begin at the site for new sewage lagoons northeast of the city airport, and then proceed to northeast Tracy near Circle Drive.
Council members asked about access issues for two houses in the construction zone, where people use wheel chairs to get in and out.  Larson said that special provisions had been made to maintain access at those locations.
The “Phase One” infrastructure project will involve sanitary sewer, storm sewer, water main and street reconstruction, in an area running from near Central Park northeasterly to the new sewage settlement ponds.  A large sewer pipe will be relocated from private property to public right-of-way.  Storm water drain connections from the sanitary sewer will be removed.
Duininck Inc., Prinsburg, was awarded a $3,256,112 contract for the Phase One work in January.
“Phase Two,” which will involved the construction of the sewage lagoons, is expected to be put out of bids soon.  Hopes are that construction can begin sometime in 2017.
