The Washington Oxford Beach Relief Sewer Project includes a number of improvements that will make the sewers more reliable for decades to come. The project involves the installation of about 2,100 feet of sewer pipe, five maintenance holes, two junction structures, and other components in Washington Boulevard between Beach Avenue and Oxford Avenue. A small portion of the project will be built in Oxford Avenue.
