2023 Construction Projects

2023 Watermain Improvements

This project generally consists of installing new water main followed by patching of the streets and driveways.  The planned project limits are as follows:

  • Sunset Avenue
  • Georgeanna Street
  • Pleasure Drive
  • Prairie LaneCapture

Construction is anticipated to begin in May 2023.  All water and roadway work will be completed by early August 2023 with final restoration occurring in the fall.

  • Construction will generally occur from 7:00 AM to 4:30 PM, Monday through Friday.  Work on Saturdays may be needed depending on the Contractor’s progress.  No work is permitted on Sundays and holidays.
  • Periodic and temporary water loss will be experienced.   Flyers will be hand delivered to residents and/or businesses 24 hours in advance of any water loss.  Water loss will not exceed 8 hours and in many instances will be for a shorter duration.  Please note that with projects of this nature unexpected water main breaks may occur.  This would require an emergency shutdown of the water main resulting in an unplanned loss of water service.
  • Construction noise and traffic.  If construction is occurring on your street or route, anticipate minor traffic delays.  Please account for this when planning your day.
  • Garbage pickup and mail delivery is anticipated to remain unchanged.  If there is a change, all parties will be notified accordingly.
  • Parking on the streets will be prohibited in active construction zones.
  • Driveway access will generally be maintained throughout the project.  Temporary loss of access may occur periodically due to construction operations.   Residents will be notified in advance of any loss of access.

The City has hired Engineering Enterprises, Inc. (EEI) to oversee construction activities.  During construction, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Resident Engineer (RE), who will be on site each day and is the best source of information regarding construction related questions.
