Project: A large road construction project is planned for the 2022 construction season on 600 West from 1600 North (Pages Lane) to 2200 North (Porter Lane). The project consists of replacing the culinary water system in the road and re-building the substructure and asphalt of the road. There will be limited repairs to curb and gutter. The project may take most of the season to complete. (see below for updates) While this project will enhance our community, city leaders understand the hardships associated with any project of this size. Work will take place in what is now street right-of-way, but residents will experience impacts to access, traffic, noise, dust, and limited water outages. Updates: 5/11/2022 – The new waterline construction that began at the north end (Porter Lane) is nearing the halfway point. Pressure and bacteria testing will begin on the completed lines and once complete, the water service laterals to each property will be switched over to the new lines. Expect heavy construction to continue for the next several weeks. For safety and to limit dust, all non-local traffic should avoid construction areas during the daytime working hours. 4/28/2022 -Water will be shut off on April 28 beginning at 9 am for properties on 600 West between 2200 N and 2050 N, and those on the east loop that include 2125 N, 520 W, and 2050 N. Contractors expect the water to be back on no later than 5 pm. Trenching for the water line will continue in preparation for installing water line pipe next week. 4/18/2022 – The road construction project is expected to begin the week of April 25. Contractors will be working in the road to identify utilities and a portion of the asphalt will be removed for a water line trench. Work is scheduled to begin on the north end. Please no on-street parking during construction.
