Oversized delivery to the treatment plant

On Wednesday, May 25th, an oversized lowboy truck carrying a large tank (approximately 10.5 ft. tall, 32 ft. long by 9.5 ft. wide) and equipment for the new ozone system will be delivered to the water treatment plant.

The truck will enter the plant site from Highway 43 and Mapleton Drive and exit on Kenthorpe Way. A pilot car will escort the vehicle. There may be some short-term traffic delays during the delivery.

If needed, the orange safety barriers at the corner of Mapleton Drive and Highway 43 may be temporarily moved to help accommodate the delivery. The yellow traffic delineators installed at the end of Mapleton Drive are not removable without breaking them. If any are impacted during the delivery, they will be reinstalled shortly after.

We appreciate your patience with this delivery. If you have any questions, please email or call 503-697-6502.
