B Ave – exploratory digging and geologic investigations in April

Throughout April, crews will be working between 7 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. 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. Once this work is complete, exploratory drilling will take place along these streets to investigate geological conditions.

We apologize for the inconvenience this work may cause and thank you for your patience as construction progresses.
