Ironton sewer rehabilitation project continues this week
While the efforts to rehabilitate Ironton’s sewer system continue this week, workers have had fewer issues with speeding vehicles and drivers who ignore signs, said Doug Cade of E.L. Robinson Engineering.
“There’s not as much,” Cade said. “I think people are becoming more aware that ‘road closed’ means road closed and they need to find an alternative route.”
In past weeks, a few drivers had been cited for driving on streets that were closed because of the sewer-lining project, he said.
Contractors will be doing manhole cover replacement as well as sewer cleaning and lining at various locations in the city this week.
