This past week the contractor completed the installation of the storm sewer, storm sewer services, and water services along Neva Avenue. All of the water services throughout the entire project have been transferred to the new water main. All the storm sewer mainline and storm sewer services are also completed throughout the entire project.
On Monday, July 15th, the contractor will be making the connections between the new and existing water mains along Neva Avenue and Harrison Street and Colfax Avenue. Due to the layout of the new and existing water mains, there will be limited disruptions to water service. Residents whose water will be shut off will be notified 24-hours in advance. During the connection to the existing water main along Colfax Avenue, a detour will be set-up around the Neva Avenue and Colfax Avenue intersection. Traffic will be diverted to Harrison Street between Nordica Avenue and Harlem Avenue. Please utilize this detour while work is on-going. Access will be allowed to Neva Avenue south of Colfax Avenue, but might be delayed due to the construction operations.
The contractor is also anticipating to perform some miscellaneous underground utility work next week. It is anticipated that all underground utility work will be completed by the middle to end of next week. Thank you all for your patience during this process.
The next step will be to perform the roadway reconstruction along the project. We are anticipating this work to begin mid to late next week. Residents have been notified regarding the construction process and directions for parking and driveway usage during the construction operations. The contractor will begin on Nora Avenue, south of Colfax Avenue. Once completed there, the contractor will move to Neva Avenue, south of Colfax. Once the work south of Colfax is completed, the work north of Colfax Avenue will begin.We ask for your cooperation in following the directions regarding access to your driveways and homes during the roadway reconstruction process.
Thanks for your patience during the construction process.
