Whitney Street, 6th Street, 7th Street, & 8th Street Areas:
Sanitary Sewer Main line crew will continue on Monday, August 8th, where they end after today. They will continue with that work until they reach Kenneth Avenue. Contractor plans this work will take three days or so. After they finish on 7th, they will work on Sewer Main on Main Avenue between 7th Street and 8th Street. If they finish Main Avenue work next week also, they plan to begin working on the Water Main on 8th Street, following the same working direction as on 7th (from Crooks working toward Kenneth). The Lateral/Service crew will continue working on Sewer Laterals and Water Services in the Public Right of Way (between back of sidewalk and back of sidewalk each side of the street). They will continue working block by block on 7th Street from Main toward Kenneth, following the main line crew.
Access to your driveway may be restricted when construction is happening on your block. The contractor performing the work uses large machines, dump trucks, and needs ample space to store needed items for the work being performed. Please find an alternate parking space during the day if you need to come and go. You may park on side streets or areas where work is not actively happening (see attached drawing showing where NOT to park on streets). Driveways will be opened and accessible at the end of each day as construction is ending. You may park overnight in your driveway. Construction normally begins by 7:00am each day, so please move your vehicles accordingly.
- If you need special accommodations for parking, please reach out as we can arrange for different parking options if we know about them. This includes anyone with disabilities, recent surgeries, expecting mothers, and mothers with newborns that have appointments. Unfortunately, there is not a one size fits all for parking and the fewer cars that the contractor has to work around, the faster they can get the work done and finish the neighborhood.
While driving through the construction site, be sure to travel slowly and keep an eye out for equipment. This not only cuts down on the dust, but also keeps the construction workers safe. Operators try their best to see traffic, but their view can be obstructed at times. It is always best to try and gain eye contact with equipment operators prior to driving by.
*PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS WORK AND SCHEDULE CAN CHANGE DUE TO WEATHER OR UNFORSEEN CONSTRUCTION DELAYS. THESE UPDATES ARE TO AID THE COMMUNICATION PROCESS AS WE ALL WORK TOGETHER TO COMPLETE THIS PROJECT IN A TIMELY MANNER*
Utility and street construction is not easy. There will be dirt, mud, dust, and construction equipment everywhere. Construction activity will be noisy and getting to your residence will be difficult at times. We ask for your patience and understanding as we make the necessary improvements to your street and utilities. Do not hesitate to contact the City with questions or concerns, we can’t help if we don’t know. Contact Taylor Conger, Project Engineer, at 920.766.6305 or [email protected] with any questions.
