SHERIDAN – Work crews from Walker Construction are making steady progress on a project to replace a sewer line under the north hallway at the Tobacco Root Mountains Care Center.
As of Friday morning crews had torn out the existing tile flooring and underlying concrete, dug up and replaced the sewer line and backfilled the trench with new concrete, said County Commissioner Dave Schulz.
Workers used a small excavator to remove a four-foot dirt pile of backfill material from the hallway. Finish crews will also need time to wrap up the small details of the repair project before residents can move back in.
“Because of the value of having residents in their own homes and the employees back working in their own place, we’re going to be working as hard as we can procedurally to move everybody along,” Schulz said.
At this time there is no set date for when the project will be complete and residents will be allowed to return.
