The Town’s major waterline replacement is continuing on to Phase II of the project. Phase II work will begin October 3, 2022 along Roanoke Street in the Town of Christiansburg.
During Phase II, crews will be replacing the waterline along Roanoke Street between First Street to Lester Street. Motorists can expect road closures and detours in this area. The inside lanes will be closed in both directions and will be utilized by the working crews. The work will happen Monday through Friday, beginning at 7:00 a.m. and ending 7:00 p.m. Phase II is expected to be completed by the end of October.
The current waterline is prone to breaks and beyond its service life. The replacement of this line will provide a higher level of service, reduced outages for citizens that result from breaks, and provide crews the opportunity to replace the pavement in this area.
Crews will also take this time to install new water meters along Roanoke Street.
As this project moves forward, citizens who live along Roanoke Street and cross streets may experience temporary and brief outages, low or high pressure, discolored water, and/or accessibility issues. Crews will contact customers who may experience outages due to the work. Citizens are encouraged to monitor their water and if any air, discoloration, or sediment is observed – run the waterline until the water runs clear.
