Current Status/Progress Report

CL Trucking & Excavating has wrapped up construction for this year and will be back next Spring to finish the water main construction on the side streets.

Construction is anticipated to start in early April 2023, pending weight restrictions on county roads have been lifted. Generally, construction of water main on side streets will commence at the south end of Algoma Avenue and work north. The construction on each road will last approximately 4-5 weeks based on the timeline below:

  • One week for tree clearing and installation of the water main
  • One week for pressure testing and disinfection testing after installation
  • One week for water services after testing requirements have been passed
  • One week for road, driveway, and lawn restoration

 

Please contact any project representative below if you have questions or concerns.

This Week:
