Sewer line replacement project ongoing

A track hoe with Cook Construction digs into dirt on Monta Place as part of the city of Muskogee’s east side interceptor replacement project. The city is replacing an old sewer line between Chandler Road and Hancock Street. Kelly Cook, co-owner of Cook Construction, said workers are having to deal with cave-ins along the sewer line, which runs through Phoenix Village housing addition. He said areas along the line caved in before workers started the contract. Jay Updike, president of the Holloway, Updike and Bellen Consulting Engineers said the sewer line work is part of a $12.2 million interceptor replacement project, which also includes a new sewer line between Hancock Street and Peak Boulevard and 18 pump stations.
