Exploratory Digging Work: Laurel and Erickson Streets

Beginning this week, crews from the Water Partnership project will be digging small holes in the roadway to locate all underground utilities and pipes to ensure the pipeline route has no conflicts with existing utilities.

Workers will use a vacuum truck, small drill rig 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 mid-May.

On these narrow roads, there will be single-lane closures where needed, to accommodate equipment but no total street closure. Please watch for flaggers and expect some temporary delays. Residents may experience some noise from a drill rig or vacuum truck during these operations.
