GRAMPIAN — Grampian’s Eighth Street storm water project is complete.
It was announced at Monday’s Grampian Borough Council meeting that the project to upgrade the storm water system on the highway is finished pending an inspection by Clearfield County Conservation District officials.
The project was halted last year while council and the district worked out a solution to some issues concerning stabilization of the bank of Davis Run and a homeowner’s property lines.
“The work is completed,” Street Commissioner Lew Weber said. “We are just waiting on final approval from the Clearfield County Conservation District.”
In July, council accepted a proposal for the work from Diehl Contracting LLC of Glen Hope. The cost for the work will be paid in part with a grant from the conservation district’s Dirt and Gravel Road Program.
The agency awarded two grants to the borough in 2016 — $22,685 for the project on Eighth Street and $41,730 for the project on Tenth Street. Council had to return to the conservation district to request additional contingency funds because the bids for both streets came in higher than expected due to the additional work to protect Davis Run.
Work also remains to wrap up the storm water project on Tenth Street. Weber said Monday work will resume on April 1 and should be wrapped up, weather permitting, sometime later in the month.
Work on the street had to take a hiatus to allow trout in Davis Run to finish spawning as per the state Fish and Boat Commission.
The completed work will also need to be inspected by officials from the conservation district.
