SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – City officials say urgent and unexpected work on a major capital sewer project could be noisy in downtown and midtown Savannah.

The work began Monday and could potentially last through Wednesday.

Ground vibration may be noticeable along the East Oglethorpe Avenue worksite between East Broad and Randolph streets, officials said. However, deep thumping noises could carry beyond the construction zone.

Officials said impacts will start at 8 a.m. and, although the duration of the impacts is unknown, work will not continue past 6 p.m.

According to the city, a new 24-inch sewer force main is being installed which will serve Westside Savannah and Chatham Parkway areas.
