Palm Sewer Replacement

An arched concrete sewer built in 1930 was in need of replacement after numerous repairs throughout the years were also failing. KCI was the successful low bidder on the project to replace this sewer with a new 18′-0″ by 14′-4″ reinforced concrete arch sewer, located at the Terminus of Branch Street on the West Bank of the Mississippi River in north St. Louis. The project schedule required completion within two years, as work was dependent on the river being below stage 10, which historically only happens a few months each year. Construction started with temporary shoring installation, excavation and demolition of the old sewer. After that the river level rose and shut down construction for months, and upon re-starting work KCI worked overtime to beat the upcoming river level rise, and should complete the work substantially ahead of the contract completion date.
