Work crews in your area

Beginning late this week, crews will be working along the proposed water pipeline route on 10th Street to A Ave., A Ave. to 9th Street, 9th Street between A and B Ave., and B Ave. between 9th and State Street. Crews 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. Once this work is complete, exploratory drilling will take place along these streets to investigate geological conditions. Work is expected to continue through April 2014.

The work will occur between 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. There will be single-lane closures, where needed, to accommodate equipment. Some narrow streets may be temporarily closed to through traffic during work hours, with access restricted to local residents during this time. Roads will be repaired after work is complete. Please watch for flaggers.
