Kenneth Avenue Area Utility Relay Update – Wk of 08/15/22

Click here for proposed work locations and possible impacts to residents for the week of August 15th.

WHITNEY STREET, 6TH STREET, 7TH STREET, & 8TH STREET AREAS:

CONSTRUCTION

Crews will continue working on Sanitary Sewer and Water Services to the right of way (back of sidewalk) on 7th Street Between Hendricks and Kenneth. They plan to have these services completed next week. Another crew will be starting Water Main Construction on 8th Street. They will begin at Crooks, and work west toward Kenneth. Water Main construction will continue until they reach Kenneth. Once they get a few blocks complete, another crew will begin working on Sanitary Sewer Main Construction on 8th, starting at Crooks with this as well, and will follow behind water main crew. There will be as many as three different crews working in different locations on both 7th and 8th next week.

DRIVEWAYS/PARKING 

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 the items needed 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 above work locations map 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.

SAFETY

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.
