Work Completed This Week

  • Milling and removals


Anticipated Work Next Week

  • Installation of water main starting from the south end of the project

Construction on East Street will begin the morning of September 18. 

On September 18, crews will be onsite to remove portions of the roadway in preparation of the water main installation. Work will be primarily on the east side of the roadway. Temporary impact to driveways due to equipment will be likely, but all access will be restored relatively quickly.

Water main construction is expected to begin on September 21, beginning at the south end of the project and working north. Access to drives will be impacted while crossing the drives with the water main. All driveway access will be restored following crossing and no later than the end of the business day.
