Overall Map


Current Status:

Construction activity began on July 2nd and is scheduled to be substantially complete on July 27th, 2018. Portions of 5th Street South and 5th Avenue South are currently closed to through traffic, as described in the Impacts section below. For detailed detour routing, please refer to the Detour maps located in the Project Resources section on the right side of this page.


Project Overview:

This project will lower the water service from the City’s water main to each individual property's shut off valve, which is typically found in the boulevard. The water service will be lowered to a minimum depth of 7.5’ below surface grade (which will place it below frost depth) by means of boring a new service from the water main to the shut off valve. A new shut off valve will also be installed at this time.
