Newport Coast Lift Station

Newport Coast Lift Station

Irvine Ranch Water District is rehabilitating a sewer lift station and replacing 3,000 linear feet of ductile iron pipe with a CIPP liner, installed through existing and new manholes. The project also includes the construction of a new building that will complement the existing structure and house a new odor-control chemical feed system, electrical components and controls. The new building will consist of block masonry with stucco exterior and a tile roof that matches the existing building.

The project is located along Newport Coast Drive between Vista Ridge and Ridge Park roads.

Work hours: 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Traffic and pedestrian impacts

For safety, crews have closed the southeast sidewalk at the project site and set up a detour for pedestrians to use the sidewalk across the street. The sidewalk will remain closed through October 2018.

Traffic lane closures will also occur during a portion of the project as detailed below:

Northbound lane closures:

  • Right lane: permanent closure through March 2018
  • Middle lane: from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday, through March 2018

Other lane closures:

  • Installation of a pipeline across all lanes of traffic will require the temporary closure of one lane at a time in early April 2018.
