Beardsley Road pipeline improvements in Peoria set for summer

The city is  about to begin construction on a pipeline improvement project in central Peoria.

City Council approved nearly $2.7 million for Achen-Gardner Construction to take the lead on the Solids Pipeline Rehabilitation project located in Beardsley Road.

The work is scheduled to begin this summer and be completed in the fall.

The solids pipeline runs along the south side of Beardsley Road from the Beardsley Water Reclamation Facility on 111th Avenue and outlets to a manhole on 91st Avenue.

The pipeline was built nearly 20 years ago and recently inspected for corrosion and structural integrity by Dibble Engineering and Achen-Gardner. The condition assessment found the pipeline is in poor condition and requires either replacement or rehabilitation. The consulting engineer and staff concluded the majority of the pipeline can be rehabilitated with a fusible PVC liner, with minimal open trench replacement.

The public was notified of this project as part of the Beardsley Channel Project through the public meeting process. Additional outreach is planned with the adjacent homeowner’s association.
