July 25, 2014 Update – Road Closures Implemented as Downtown Century II Utilities Upgrade Project Gets Underway – After implementing the traffic control plan for the two-month road closure on Tuesday, July 22, KUB’s contractor, Garney Construction, mobilized their equipment in the work zone and began replacing the sewer manhole located at the intersection of S. Central Street and Commerce Avenue. Crews are currently replacing the sewer main from the new manhole and progressing south toward Union Avenue. Water system prep work and relocation of a section of natural gas main are scheduled for early next week ahead of water main replacement on Commerce Avenue, and installation of electric transformer vaults on S.
