This past week the contractor completed installing the new storm sewer, storm sewer services, and water services along Nora Avenue north of Colfax Avenue. The contractor also made connections between the new water main and the existing water main along Nora Avenue at Harrison Street and Colfax Avenue. The majority of the underground utility work along Nora Avenue is now completed.
On Monday, June 17th, weather dependent, the contractor will need to set up a detour route for Colfax between Harlem and Nordica during the daytime to install storm sewer and manholes in the intersection of Neva and Colfax. The detour will last 2 to 3 days during daytime work hours. Colfax will be open at night. Residents should plan on using Harrison Street during the day. Residents south of Colfax will be able to access Neva but there may be slight delays at times. Police and Fire Departments will be notified and will always have access to homes.
Next week the contractor will move to Neva Avenue and continue the same process as utilized on Nora Avenue. The Contractor will begin by installing the storm manhole at the intersection of Neva Avenue and Colfax Avenue. The contractor will install storm sewer main line, storm sewer services, and water services at the same time along Neva Avenue going south from Colfax Avenue.During water service installation and connection to the existing service, water to individual homes will be shut off for a short period of time. The contractor will knock on the door of any home that will not have water prior to turning it off.
Thank you for your patience during the construction operations.
