Water Main Replacement Taking Place on Several Streets in Willow Grove
Motorists should be on the lookout for traffic delays and possible detours throughout the township with Aqua conducting Water Main replacement.
As part of Aqua’s continuing infrastructure improvement program, they will replace the water main on the following streets in Upper Moreland Township, Montgomery County.
- Park Avenue between W. Moreland Avenue and Easton Road.
- Center Avenue between W. Moreland Avenue and Easton Road.
- Cedar Avenue between Summit Avenue and Easton Road.
- Summit Avenue between Center Avenue and Easton Road.
The new main will increase service reliability and improve firefighting capabilities in the area. Aqua will have an inspector on the job each day to answer any questions you might have. The $425,000 project is scheduled to begin on February 22, 2013 and will involve the installation of 3,900 feet of 8-inch ductile iron main. We expect the main installation, service transfers, street tie-ins, and final paving restoration to be completed in May 2013.
The work hours will be 7 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. daily. Some Saturdays may be necessary to keep the project on schedule. Access will be provided for emergency, mail and trash service. Residents will have access to their properties. We ask that you avoid traveling through the construction zone whenever possible.
