[ARCHIVED] Roanoke St. Waterline Replacement - Update

Orange "road work ahead" sign

The major waterline replacement on Roanoke Street will continue into the final phase of the project beginning Jan. 16, 2023 and is expected to be completed in March 2023.

The work will happen from Haymaker St. to Depot St., including the intersection of Depot St. and Roanoke St. Motorists can expect multiple changes in traffic patterns in this area.

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.

Ultimately, this project will fully replace the existing 80-year-old water mainline with a new, 12-inch water mainline. The contractor has successfully installed 75% of the new line. This replacement will provide a higher level of service, and will reduce outages resulting from waterline breaks.

The completion of the waterline project will allow for paving to begin. The contractor will be patching areas along Roanoke St. where the waterline is being installed. This is a temporary solution until streets can be paved. Weather permitting, the paving will be conducted at nighttime hours in spring 2023 and will begin at the segment between 460 Interchange and Tower Rd. Updates on traffic patterns and scheduling will be provided throughout the paving process.Roanoke Street Traffic Control Phase 4 - Mainline_Page_3
