Work to replace the water lines in the alleyways along Broadway in downtown Edmond will result in sections of those areas during work on the project.
Part of the Downtown Edmond Infrastructure Improvements Project, work will begin Aug. 8 on the alleyways on the west side of Broadway from 3rd Street to Hurd Street. Once completed, work on the alleyways on the east side of Broadway from 3rd Street to Campbell Street will begin.
Work on each section is expected to take approximately 6 months, with cooperative weather.
During installation of the new water line, no through traffic will be available in the section of the alleyways under construction. The contractor on the project, All Road Paving, Inc., will work with businesses impacted by the project to accommodate deliveries necessary to conduct business in as a normal a way as possible.
Once installation of the new water lines in each section of the alleyways is completed, a temporary backfill cover will make the section of alleyway accessible to the public again. When each side of the alleyway work is complete, permanent paving will be installed and additional concrete paving and street parking paving will be completed along First Street and Main Street to Fretz.
The Downtown Edmond Infrastructure Improvements Project includes a new sanitary sewer main and manholes from the regional detention pond north of Hurd and west of the railroad tracks. Work also has extended new storm sewer infrastructure from the regional detention pond south to half a block south of First Street on Santa Fe Drive. The City also is constructing a new waterline on Main Street from Santa Fe to the railroad tracks.
The total cost of this project is $4,626,643.19.
