Walnut Street Closed for Waterline Replacement, January- March

Posted on: Dec-27-2017

Phase 3 of the Walnut Street Water & Sewer Rehabilitation Project begins Jan. 2 and will continue through March 2018. Utilities will abandon two old 4- and 6-inch waterlines in Walnut Street and install 500 feet of new 8-inch waterline from College Avenue to Linden Street. Two new fire hydrants will be installed and water services will be connected to the new line.

Walnut Street between College Avenue and Linden Street will be closed to all traffic and parking during construction. Deliveries and residential access will be accommodated. Sidewalks will remain open at all times. Utilities will be distributing 3,300 parking vouchers monthly, beginning at the end of December, in advance of the Jan. 2 road closure.

At the request of the Walnut Street business owners, this critical infrastructure improvement project was divided into phases over 2017 to accommodate impact concerns. Phase 1 of the project, sewer line replacement in Walnut Street and Seckner Alley, was completed in April. The second phase of the project, new waterline in Pine Street, was completed in September.

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 and closures. For your safety, please stay away from the barricades and follow all detours.
