Exploratory Digging Work: Boones Ferry Road, Lanewood St, Douglas Circle, Twin Fir Road, Upper Drive, Iron Mountain Blvd. and Chandler Road

Beginning in mid December, crews will be working along the proposed water pipeline route that runs east from Lake Grove School and Boones Ferry Road along Lanewood Street, Douglas Circle, Twin Fir Road, Upper Drive, Iron Mountain Boulevard and Chandler Road. They will dig small holes in the roadway to locate all underground utilities and pipes, to ensure the pipeline route does not conflict with existing utilities.

Workers will use a vacuum truck and small excavator, digging holes 50 to 150 feet apart as they travel along the pipeline route. Holes will be repaired as work progresses. Work is expected to continue through the end of January 2014.

The following table outlines key locations and approximate timeframes for the digging work.
