Starting February 8, 2021, the town will be upgrading underground infrastructure in the vicinity of West Locust and West Court Streets. The scope of the project includes:
Upgrading and converting sewer pipe from terra cotta to longer lasting ductile iron,
Implementing fire safety improvements including a new 8” water line and upgraded fire hydrants,
Upgrading the 4” water line to an 8” will allow future water connections along Court Street enabling better east-west water flow in this corridor, and
Installing new storm water inlets and piping to better direct runoff towards the storm water pond, thereby reducing potential flooding downtown.
Traffic in the closed area will be limited to residents living in that area. This project is subject to weather conditions and will be closed until completion of the road excavation. We anticipate a 3-week schedule and appreciate your patience while this work is completed. Please contact the Town Office for more information – 540-459-3621.
Please stay posted for project updates and milestones!
