Ohio Canal Interceptor Tunnel (OCIT-1)

The Ohio Canal Interceptor Tunnel (OCIT) broke ground on November 6, 2015. This is the largest project under the Akron Waterways Renewed! program. The tunnel will be 27 feet in diameter, span a distance of 6,240 feet, and will be able to hold 25 million gallons of storm water and sewage. 

In August the contractor will continue working on completing the TDS Overflow Slab, begin constructing the TDS interior walls, resume backfilling over the LCI Connector pipe and around the LCI structures. During this activity the Contractor will relocate the access ramp for the TDS to allow construction of the LCI Junction Chamber and the Overflow Culvert.

Installation of the generator and other large equipment inside the Control Building, then install trusses.

Continue backfilling at the North Wall of the TDS in preparation for the construction of the TDS Overflow Transition and the Access Drive retaining walls and continue demobilizing miscellaneous tunneling equipment from the OCIT-1 lay-down yard.
