City workers begin digging down toward damaged sewer lines

Traffic along Highway 31 in Brewton was scheduled to be reopened late Wednesday afternoon following two days of closure in anticipation that the Alabama Department of Transportation will repave the U.S. highway through Brewton in early summer.

U.S. 31 was closed from Underwood Street to the Evergreen Avenue intersection Tuesday and Wednesday as the town made repairs to the sewer line. Town workers also found a ruptured water main in the process.

Ray Madden, utilities superintendent for the city of Brewton, said ALDOT is scheduled let bids for the resurfacing of the highway in April and have it repaved by June 1.

Madden said the city has received a grant to repair the old sewer lines, mostly through inserting liners, but there were several spots that needed to be dug out.

"We wanted to get that work done before they repaved the road," Madden said.

The grant, through the Alabama of Department of Economic and Development Agency will allow the town to repair sewer lines from Blacksher to Granberry without digging up the highway.
