COOS BAY — The City of Coos Bay is continuing construction of the new wastewater plant in Empire.
Along with the construction of the plant, the project involves installation of a pipeline along several local streets and portions of Ocean Boulevard. The majority of the pipeline will be installed utilizing a method of construction called directional drilling. The directional drilling will involve boring the pipe as opposed to conventional trench construction. This type of construction will minimize impacts to the roads and traffic.
The directional drilling will begin Monday, Oct. 9, near the plant project at the intersection of Fulton and South Marple Avenue. The project will move in a westerly direction along the route identified in the map. Through traffic will be maintained during construction with cones and flaggers used as needed to help the public proceed safely. It is anticipated that it will take approximately two months to install the pipe.
