East Nashville rehab projects continue in Inglewood and Jackson Park neighborhoods

COMPREHENSIVE SEWER SYSTEM RENEWAL throughout large areas of East Nashville and Inglewood continues with the start of the Shelby Park Rehabilitation—Area 4—Brush Hill Road project.

This large scale project will repair sewer infrastructure in an area on the east side of Gallatin Road within the boundaries of Brush Hill Road, Riverwood Drive, Log Cabin Road, and Freemont Avenue. The project is in the Inglewood and Jackson Park neighborhoods in Metro Council District 7.

Following the assessment of more than 47,000 linear feet of existing sewers, the resulting construction project will rehabilitate approximately 38,000 linear feet of existing sewer pipe that is sized between 8 and 18-inches in diameter. Work will also include renewals of service laterals and manhole rehabilitation. About 60 percent of the work will be conducted in roadways and the remainder in easements on residential properties. To the extent possible, the work will rely on construction practices that minimize surface disturbances in the area.
The repairs are required to update defective 1960s-era sewer system pipes and services connections. The Shelby Park Rehabilitation—Area 4—Brush Hill Road project continues extensive rehabilitation of older sewers in Nashville. Improving sewer system performance in these areas will reduce wet-weather, sanitary sewer overflows into Nashville’s waterbodies.

Construction began in July and is anticipated to be completed in summer 2016.
