The City has secured DV Weber Construction, Inc. to complete the 2017 Waterline Improvements Project. The project consists of replacing main waterlines, water services, updating water meters, and installing new fire hydrants on Avon Place (East State Street to the Sells Park Parking Lot), and Dalton Avenue (from Grand Park Boulevard to Eden Place).
The Contractor has completed sawcutting, but waterline installation has been delayed and is expected to begin the week of September 25, 2017.
Once the waterline installation is complete, the City's Paving Contractor, Nuko Paving, will be completing the asphalt overlay on Avon Place.
During construction, access to the streets will be maintained, but on-site parking may be restricted. The Contractor is planning to start work at the Avon Place/East State Street intersection and work towards Sells Park. The Contractor will be closing the block within the work zone to through-traffic; however, local traffic will be maintained.
