WHAT TO EXPECT

During construction, anticipate temporary inconveniences. Please exercise caution in the work zone and note that:

  • Access to homes and emergency vehicles will be maintained at all times;
  • There may be temporary traffic rerouting and other access restrictions during this work;
  • Staged pipe, fittings, equipment and storage containers will be located along the work zone;
  • When required, temporary “No Parking” signs will be posted 48 hours before construction activities start;
  • Vehicles parked in violation of signs will be towed; and
  • Road closures, detours and restricted access will occur between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m.*

NORMAL HOURS AND DAYS OF OPERATION*

Sunday through Thursday nights, 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.
*Hours may vary based on traffic impacts.

PARKING NOTICES TO BE AWARE OF:

Yellow “No Parking” signs will be used for night work.

This Capital Improvement Program (CIP) project will replace about four miles of old, deteriorating, cast iron water mains with new Polyvinyl-Chloride (PVC) pipes. PVC pipes offer improved service reliability and a longer service life. Improvements also include new valves, fire hydrants and installation of curb ramps that facilitate access for persons with disabilities. In addition, streets that have been excavated as part of this work will be slurry sealed as phases are completed. Any areas of vegetation or landscaping that are affected will be replaced. Construction of this infrastructure  project is expected to last about three years.
