Nubble Road Project Update 9/19/2019


  • Wednesday afternoon, Mick installed new 10” watermain within 70’ of the intersection of Nubble and Church Street Ext.​
  • Then Mick began water service work on the far end to yield to BIG.
  • This move allowed BIG to install the new sewer main past the intersection of Nubble and Church Street Ext.
  • This morning, Mick started working on watermain again towards the CSE intersection. We expect to have that tied in tonight. This effort will allow the Water crews to fill flush and test the next section very soon.
  • BIG focused on laying sewer main all day today.

STATS to date;

  • Mick Construction has installed approximately 980’ of 1700’ of new 10” water main and 2 fire hydrants.
    • The 1st section of new water main from #71 Nubble to #45 Nubble has been filled, flushed, tested, chlorinated and sampled with satisfactory results. All water that was flushed from the new watermain was properly de-chlorinated.
    • Our crews will begin connecting a few homes in this area asap.

BIG has installed approximately 1040’ of 1600’ of new sewer main, 4 manholes and several sewer services.

Again, we thank the residents for your continued patience.

Nubble Road Project Update 9/11/2019


As of 9/11/2019, BIG Construction has installed approximately 322’ of 1600’ of new sewer main and 2 manholes and Mick Construction has installed approximately 440’ of 1700’ of new water main and 1 fire hydrant. Really good progress!

But, we have some good news…… When planning for the project, test borings were completed to determine if we could expect ledge on this project. The borings indicated a lot of ledge heading up over the hill @ the top of Nubble Road.

​BIG Construction is finding a lot of very large boulders not ledge. Woo-hoo! Excavating large boulders is a pain, but much quicker than removing ledge (especially at 14’+ deep). The plan is to have Nubble Road back open before the weekend.

Nubble Rd Project Update 9/4/2019


As we always mention on a project like this, the 1st few days are always rocky. We apologize in advance! It has been rocky!

Our crews have uncovered all detour signs and established the construction zone. No work is scheduled on the weekends, but signs will remain in place just as a reminder.

Nubble Road was reclaimed yesterday. This portion of the project took longer than expected but it is done!

Slight change in next steps:

Tomorrow ,Thursday September 5th after the morning school busses pass. Nubble Road near #68 will be closed for the day. Area residents that live below # 68 Nubble Road can access their properties from the LBA end and residents above #71 will be able to access their properties from Broadway.

  • Mick Construction (the water main contractor) will begin excavation in front of 68 Nubble Road.
  • They will begin replacing the watermain by completing a full road crossing. (they will need to start with an assortment of fittings which can be time consuming).
  • As soon as the road crossing is complete, we will work to have the road open for the afternoon School Bus run.
  • This effort should get us aligned to maintain single lane traffic on Friday and several days moving forward.

As for the change in plans;

  • Brown Industrial Group or “BIG”(the sewer contractor) has decided to delay their start until Monday September 9th.
  • BIG will start replacing the sewer main on the Long Beach Ave end heading uphill. This will require Nubble Road to be closed again. Residents above this section of Nubble Road can access their properties from the Broadway end. As Mick (the water main contractor) will work to allow single lane local resident traffic only.
  • Our intent is to allow local area residents access and work to get others to use Broadway.

Nubble Rd Project Update 8/22/2019


This is the 1st project update.

On August 6th, 2019, a pre-construction meeting was held to work out last minute details. Crews have prepared and installed most of the detour signs that will direct the traveling public towards Nubble Light via Broadway, we have also prepared a few custom signs to direct customers to area business’s. The detour will help to reduce traffic trying to pass thru the construction zone.

Our project inspectors, will work to guide local residents for daily access to their properties. Inspectors will also notify York Dispatch daily to keep emergency services informed.

  • Kevin Leconte 207-251-1229 of YSD

On Tuesday September 3rd, the Town’s paving contractor Libby-Scott will “reclaim” Nubble Road from the intersection of Long Beach Ave to approximately number #71 Nubble Road. After reclaiming they will grade and compact the road for a passable surface.

“To reclaim, known as asphalt pulverization, this process uses a machine called a reclaimer or pulverizer that is equipped with an 8-foot-wide mandrel cutting wheel that creates a recycled usable base. Full-depth reclamation offers a host of benefits including lowered costs, an expedited schedule, and added structural benefits”.

On Wednesday September 4th , Brown Industrial Group “BIG”, contractor for the York Sewer District will begin work on the LBA end of Nubble Road. As BIG approaches the hill just before Sand Castle Lane, the road will need to be closed to traffic due to the depth of the excavation. Mick Construction, contractor for the York Water District will mobilize their equipment on the same day and begin work near #71 Nubble Road. This will also require a road closure for one day. This will be a coordinated effort to minimize delays.

YWD crews have been busy installing temporary waterlines to serve the residents in the area with a safe supply of water for domestic use. It was necessary to install about 3000’ of polyethene lines that were chlorinated, flushed and bacteria samples were successfully completed.

YWD will be connecting the majority of the homes to the temporary lines the week of August 26th. Then any properties remaining will be connected on Tuesday 09/03/19 and Wednesday 09/04/19.

York Water District has called in a DIG SAFE naming York Water District, York Sewer District, YDPW, BIG, Mick Construction , Libby Scott Paving and Busby Construction as the contractors. The Dig Safe ticket number is 20193409358.

Again, there will be scheduled road closures during the project. York dispatch will be notified daily by our inspectors. Our priority is to coordinate access for emergency services, trash collection, school busses, mail and local residents. The 1st few days of a project like this will always produce a few issues, that we will work to resolve. The benefits will outweigh the inconvenience.

We appreciate your patience. Please contact us directly if you have any issues, questions or concerns.

Nubble Rd Project Update 9/26/2019


Message from Staff at York Sewer District;

Brown Industrial Group (BIG) completed the 1600 feet of mainline sewer replacement for the York Sewer District on Wednesday September 25th. BIG will spend today and tomorrow demoing one remaining manhole structure that will no longer be in use, fixing one short service line, and cleanup and demobilization from the job site. In addition to the mainline sewer BIG was able to complete just under 500 feet of sewer services and 7 manholes inside of 3 weeks. A sincere thank you to everyone involved that made this job such a success.

Message from Staff at York Water District;

  • As of this afternoon, Mick has completed the installation of approximately 1542’ of 1700’ of new 10” water main and 2 fire hydrants.
  • 24 of the 39 water services have been replaced from the new watermain to the property line.
    • The 2nd section of new water main from #45 Nubble to the intersection of Church Street Ext has been filled, flushed, tested, chlorinated and sampled with satisfactory results. All water that was flushed from the new watermain was properly de-chlorinated.
    • Now that this section is complete, the new fire hydrant located at # 33 Nubble Road is now in service. And the good news is that available fire flows are no longer diminished.
    • Next week our crews will begin the process of transferring temporary water service over to permanent for the completed services.
  • By the 1st of next week Mick should make the final connection on the new watermain. Then they will complete the remaining water services.
  • We will be very close to full completion by the end of next week.

Respectfully submitted on behalf of the project.

Nubble Rd Project Update 10/3/2019


As you are aware the York Sewer District completed the sewer main replacement portion of the project last week. On Tuesday of this week, Mick completed the final tie in on the new watermain. The entire new watermain has been filled, flushed, tested and chlorinated. We still need to take a second water sample on the final section (tomorrow) and wait for the results prior to putting this section in service.

At this point there are only 10 water services to replace, which we expect to be completed by October 9th. Water crews are working to reinstall water meters. Next week they will begin removing the temporary waterpipes.

On October 9th, the Utilities will be handing the entire work zone over to YDPW. Work by Public Works has already begun on the existing drainage system. If you have any questions regarding the drainage work, future sidewalk, or road improvements please contact Dean Lessard at (207) 363-1010 or dlessard@yorkmaine.org.

If you have any questions or concerns that you wish to address regarding the water main installation or clean up along the utility portion of the work zone, please don’t hesitate to call Don Neumann at 207-363-2265 or e-mail at dneumann@yorkwaterdistrict.org

If you have any questions or concerns that you wish to address regarding the sewer main installation or clean up along the utility portion of the work zone, please don’t hesitate to call Tim Haskell at 207-363-4232 or e-mail at thaskell@yorksewerdistrict.org

This project was not without challenges. The effort necessary to start a project of this size with 2 separate contractors, starting at each end would not have been possible without communication and collaboration between Mick Construction, Brown Industrial Group, York Police & Dispatch, York Beach Fire Department, Postal Carriers, School Bus Drivers, Rubbish Collection, our inspectors Webster and Kevin and most importantly the residents of the area.

Thank you for working with us for success.
