House Street will be closed to thru traffic during water main construction. With the narrow roadway and the steep drop-off to the north, the work area is quite congested. It is difficult to keep the road “open” constantly for local traffic, and at times there might be a couple-minute wait while DeSal clears dirt piles. DeSal is working diligently to keep one lane open for local traffic to get through.
The water main will be installed along the north side of House Street. Due to steep side-slopes and since the road is not at a consistent location within the public road right-of-way, the water main location will be anywhere from right under the edge of pavement to almost 20 feet from the edge of pavement.
Some properties have substantial landscaping within the road right-of-way that may be affected by water main construction. Please check the survey stakes when they are installed and contact us with any questions. You may wish to move fencing, landscaping and/or plantings out of the right-of-way prior to water main construction.
There will be times that the area in front of your home is torn up and you will have limited access to your home. Please let us know if you have any special access needs and we will do our best to make arrangements with you.
Notify us if you have any problems with mail delivery and garbage collection.
Prein&Newhof will have personnel in the field on behalf of Plainfield Charter Township.
