The latest phase of the project will affect areas around CSO 4—from Wilson Avenue south to Cherry Hill, and from North Waverly east to North Elizabeth Street.
The newest phase of the City of Dearborn's storm sewer separation is set to begin this spring, City Council announced Tuesday. Council approved a contract for $13.14 million—with a $500,000 contingency for unforeseen circumstances—for this phase of construction, which will separate combined sanitary and sewer pipes along main roads in the affected area, as well as include repaving of the roads. "It's a short-term inconvenience, but a long-term benefit," Dearborn City Council President Tom Tafelski said of the construction. Expected to start during the 2013 construction season, the project will affect the area of CSO 4—from Wilson Avenue south to Cherry Hill, and from North Waverly east to North Elizabeth Street. The construction is part of…

Construction on the Combined Sewer Overflow site will mean traffic is reduced to one lane each way through mid November.
Motorists heading down Outer Drive this fall should expect their drive to take a little longer. Through around mid-November, Combined Sewer Overflow construction will reduce traffic to one lane each way on Outer Drive, north of Michigan Avenue.

The construction will include the replacement of roadway pavement and new curbs, gutters, driveway approaches and sidewalks. Access to the Dearborn Fire Station, Fire Safety House, Dearborn High School and the Garrison Street commercial area will not be affected. However, the construction timeline will encompass the Dearborn Fire Department Safety House and Pumpkin Patch on Oct. 15-16, as well as DHS homecoming …

The projects, discussed Tuesday evening at a public meeting, are expected to cut costs and help reduce basement flooding, but will cause temporary traffic disruptions for residents.
A public hearing was held Tuesday night at Dearborn City Hall to inform residents about the next six stages of construction for the city’s sewer separation projects. In addition to giving background information on the history of the CSO projects, information was handed out detailing when the sewer separation construction will take place, how it will affect residents, how much it will cost and where the funding is coming from. In 2002, the city began building deep-sinking caissons to be used for sewer water capture and treatment in an effort to meet new federal water quality mandates while continuing regional efforts to clean up water flowing into the Rouge River. But as construction of the CSO caissons proved to be more costly and …

The city of Dearborn will hold a public hearing on the proposed separation of the Combined Sewer Overflow areas 001, 002, 003, 004 and 005 on the west side of the city for the purpose of receiving comments from interested persons. The hearing will be held at 5 p.m. on June 21, at Dearborn City Hall in the City Council Chambers.

This construction work will eliminate the discharge of combined wastewater to the Rouge River from these areas. These separation projects are part of an overall combined sewer overflow program for the city that includes both separation and CSO treatment facilities to reduce and treat the discharges of combined…
