The Ypsilanti Community Utilities Authority (YCUA) will be making repairs to the sanitary sewer system along Whittaker Rd immediately north of Bemis Rd. The repairs will involve replacing the existing manhole on the west side of Whittaker Rd on the shoulder of the north side of Bemis Rd and several lengths of pipe north of the manhole. Subsequent repair work will involve lining the section of pipe; similar to inserting a stent into a blood vessel. The work will be completed by Pamar Enterprises Inc., a contractor for YCUA.


The repair work will require the flow normally transported through the sanitary sewer to be pumped around the repair. The pump operation will involve temporary pipes laid on the ground surface that will cross driveways from Whittaker Rd to residences. Vehicular access will be maintained, either by routing the temporary pipe through the stormwater culvert under the driveway or in the form of a ramp as depicted in the photo to the right.


Bemis Rd will be closed to all traffic between Whittaker Rd and Fox Tail Court. The detour route around the closed section of Bemis Rd will be Whittaker Rd to Merritt Rd to Hitchingham Rd for west bound Bemis Rd. The detour for east bound Bemis Rd will be Hitchingham Rd to Merritt Rd to Whittaker Rd.

The first phase of the repair is scheduled to start Monday, May 21, 2018 and is expected to be completed by the end of the day Tuesday, May 22, 2018. The second phase will start Monday, June 4, 2018 and is expected to last one day. The final phase of the repair will occur approximately 3 weeks later (around Monday, June 25, 2018) and will be completed in 2 days or less.
