Progress Report

Belmont Avenue will be open to thru traffic by the end of the day Friday (8/13).

 
This week:
  • Dean’s continued 12-inch water main installation along Packer Drive, reference the project map above to see the progress.
  • The special ball and joint pipe for the Rogue River crossing arrived on site this week! This pipe is designed specifically for river crossing applications and the joints can bend more than a typical ductile iron pipe joint allowing the pipe to closely follow the U-shape of the riverbed.
 
Next week:
  • Dean’s will continue to install 12-inch water main along Packer Drive and get near Packer Woods Drive and the bridge over the White Pine Trail.
  • Towards the end of next week Dean’s will hit pause on water main installation and move back down to the Rogue River to begin preparing for the river crossing which will take place Labor Day week.

 

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