The work under Second Avenue near the Midtown Parking Lot in Warren is complete.
One block was shut down Tuesday and Thursday as preparation for the construction of a new Northwest Savings Bank building continued.
The crew from Building Systems Inc. of Erie dug to a depth of nine feet below street level to tap into the City of Warren storm and sanitary sewer lines, according to BSI Job Superintendent John Rotko.
A crew from Buildings Systems Inc. of Erie fills a hole in Second Avenue near the Midtown Lot Thursday after completing a tie-in to the Warren sanitary and storm sewer system. The new connection will serve the new Northwest Bank Building to be constructed between Second and Pennsylvania Avenue. Second Avenue reopened Thursday evening after being closed Tuesday.
"They opened up the street and they are tapping into the city's main sewer systems - both storm and sanitary," Department of Public Works Director Mike Holtz said.
The old tie-ins did not match the elevations necessary for the new building, Rotko said.
The next stage of the work will be creating the foundation for the building.
Rotko said that work won't likely begin for at least two weeks.
The target date for completion of the building is September 2013.
