Street, sewer projects underway across Eudora
Construction on the long-awaited east sewer interceptor project was expected to begin earlier this week.
The project encompasses installing new 15- to 18-inch sewer lines in east Eudora along the creek bed from Seventh to 12th streets. Also on tap for construction is a new pump station at Seventh Street that will be connected to the city's current station at Seventh and Maple streets.
The new collector line on the east side of the city is designed to relieve the collection burden of the line that runs north to south several blocks west of Church Street.
The city is paying for the $1.5 million project with a revolving loan program through the Kansas Department of Health and environment.
Construction for 28th Street road improvements is also underway. The city of Eudora is anticipating the project will take about two months to complete.
Subdivision developers are financing the project.
The city expects Monday to begin installing storm sewers along 28th Street, west of Douglas County Road 1061. The installations could disrupt traffic in the area.

Utility extension and challenges will be discussed Thursday night as city and school leaders continue their discussion of growth issues in Eudora.
The meeting is set to begin at 6:30 p.m. at Eudora City Hall, 4 E. Seventh St.
