Work on the $1.4 million project is expected to begin on Monday and will involve the installation of 7,300 feet of eight-inch ductile iron main. The new main will replace the existing six-inch cement and six-inch cast iron main.
Main installation, service transfers, street tie-ins and final paving restoration is expected to be completed by December.
Work will be carried out on the following streets:
- Cherry Street between York Road and No. 27 Cherry Street
- Church Street between York and Moreland roads
- Moreland Road between Edgehill and York roads
- Moreland Road between York Road and the railroad tracks
Work hours will be from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. daily on Cherry and Church streets; and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for Moreland Road between Edgehill Road and the railroad tracks.
Moreland Road between Edgehill and York roads will be detoured between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. 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.
