This week Schippers finished switching the water services over to the temporary water main. Water main installation began today (Friday) on Bonanza Drive at 5 Mile Road. Schippers also completed work in Rockhill Drive, Wabash Drive, and Airway Street. Schippers’ bore and jack contractor, Marksman Contracting, completed the installation of the 30-inch casing under Plainfield Avenue and the new water main was installed. Fer-Pal Construction installed the three sections of water main liner along Plainfield Avenue.
Next week Fer-Pal Construction will finish the lining work by cleaning and televising the inside of the new water main liner. After this is completed, Schippers will work on installing new water main, valves, and hydrants to connect the lined sections. Schippers will also complete the valve and hydrant installation on Cedarcrest and continue to install new water main in the Bonneville and Bonanza area.
Please contact any project representative below if you have questions or concerns.
What to Expect
- Water main construction on Bonneville Drive and Bonanza Drive between 5 Mile Road and Brisam Street.

Schippers’ overall project schedule anticipates the total project, including road paving and lawn restoration, being complete in late summer.
