Construction on 6th Avenue continues smoothlyJuly 30th, 2013 at Tue, 30th, 2013 at 10:28 am by Richard D. Oxley
Monday – crews will be replacing concrete sidewalk patches on the east side of 6th and working on installing fire hydrants at Sommerseth and Matson.
Tuesday through Friday – the crew will be working on road crossings and installing new water service lines for the rest of the week. Road closures will vary depending on which area they are in.
Tuesday night – Crews will be flushing the new waterline after 10 p.m. This work should take a few hours and we will be as quick as possible. Residents may experience some dirty water first thing Wednesday morning. If this is the case please let your faucet run for a little while and it should clear up.
Next week the crews will be working on connecting the new watermain to the residents. During these connections the water will need to be turned off. We will keep all shutdowns as brief as possible and will not shut anybody down until 9 a.m. to allow for morning showers. The city will be handing out notices to the affected customers 48 hours prior to the shutdown.
