Laporte Avenue between Shields Street and Taft Hill Road will be closed to through traffic from July 9-August 1 for infrastructure upgrades to waterline valves. Local access to businesses and residences will remain open.
The project is the third of three phases this summer that will replace 1920s water transmission lines and valves in the area. It also completes the Laporte Avenue Water Transmission Main Rehabilitation Project, which has been ongoing since 2008.
Safety for residents, commuters, bike riders, pedestrians and work crews is a priority. Barricades and fences will be used to clearly mark areas of excavation that will be fenced off at night and on weekends. For your safety, please stay away from these areas and follow all signage instructions.
