Construction Update

Crews will be installing a new 12-inch waterline from Stanford to Girard the week of Oct. 3-7. During this construction, one westbound lane will be closed on Central from west of Yale to east of Girard. Access to all side streets, including Girard and Monte Vista, will be open during this work.

On the south side of Central, crews will be completing tie-ins in the three alley locations between Stanford and Girard. Crews will coordinate in advance with residents and businesses affected by these tie-ins. No businesses are expected to be without water during regular business hours.
