Sewer line repair requires road work through Nov. 30

Road work to repair a sewer line on Forest Drive near Hillsmere Drive will continue through Nov. 30, county officials said.

Some portions of the road will be covered with temporary metal plates until Monday. Grouting of the pipe will continue from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily through Nov. 30.

The pipe broke during a heavy rainstorm in August. Officials said they do not expect the repairs to cause major traffic delays.
