Project Update

April 29, 2016 UPDATE – This week, Garney Construction crews began installation of the new water main on Cumberland Avenue between Henley Street and Locust Street, and completed installation of the new wastewater main on Clinch Avenue between Locust Street and Walnut Street.

Crews also reached two major milestones this week by completing the new water main on Cumberland Avenue/Main Street (between Eleventh Street and Henley Street), and by completing the new water main on Henley Street. Paving restoration will take place on both of these roadways next week with intermittent lane closures throughout the day to repave necessary areas. Additionally, throughout the month of May, intermittent overnight lane closures will continue as the subcontractor completes remaining wastewater work, but all work requiring excavation on Henley Street has been completed.

Crews will wrap up all construction activities at approximately 3 p.m. today, and reopen all other currently closed roadways for the weekend. Crews will return on site at 6 a.m. on Monday, May 2, and re-implement the traffic control plan as indicated on the map in the upper right hand corner of this blog. KUB and its contractor would like to remind everyone to be mindful of the areas where crews have been working, as rough pavement and gravel may be present over the weekend, and exercise caution when walking in these areas.

Next week, water main work will continue on Cumberland Avenue through the Locust Street intersection and east toward Walnut Street. Wastewater work will also take place on Clinch Avenue between Locust Street and Walnut Street. Crews will also begin work north of W. Summit Hill Drive on Cafego Place, and more information will be issued ahead of that work.
