September 19, 2018
ELKTON, MD. -- County Executive Alan McCarthy, Administrator Al Wein, along with Council Vice President Dan Schneckenburger and Councilman Bob Meffley, Director of Public Works Scott Flanigan and members of the project team, participated in a ground breaking ceremony for the Elkton West Sanitary Sewer Subdistrict Tuesday afternoon.
The Marley Road Sewer Extension, slated for completion in late February 2019, is the first phase of construction. The project will extend gravity sewer from an existing tie-in location located at the entrance of AUI Power along the south side of Route 40 approximately 1000-ft. east of the Marley Road intersection. Gravity sewer will also be extended approximately 700-ft. up Marley Road north of Route 40.
This phase of the project will provide a connection location for a future sewer force main associated with phase two of the Elkton West project. There are currently three phases of construction planned along the Route 40 corridor which will result in County owned and operated sanitary sewer service from Route 279 to Marley Road upon completion.
"This is a very exciting day and I would like to express my thanks to the council members who have helped make this happen," said County Executive Alan McCarthy. "This is 50 years in the making and we want to get it done!"
Design engineer for the project is Hazen & Sawyer. The contractor is Stewart & Tate, Inc., while RK&K will handle construction management and inspection.
