  • Diversey (Sheffield to Racine) Water Main
    Posted: 3/24/2015
    The Department of Water Management will soon be installing 3,074 feet of 8-inch water main in W. Diversey Parkway, from N. Racine Avenue to N. Sheffield Avenue, N. Kenmore Avenue, from W. Diversey Parkway to N. Lincoln Avenue and N. Seminary Avenue, from W. Diversey Parkway to N. Lincoln Avenue

    Reason: The old main consists of a 6-inch pipe and we want to expand capacity. Further the old pipe dates back to 1900 and needs to be replaced.

    Timing: We will begin installing the new water main shortly, and expect the water main job to be completed in mid June 2015. In addition, following the completion of the water main work, a new sewer main will be installed. Final restoration will follow the completion of the sewer main installation. Dates may change depending on weather and other factors. If there is any appreciable change, we will notify you.

    Parking: We will post our work area for ?No Parking? as needed, during work hours (7am- 4pm). We are agreeable to parking outside of those hours, but will have to insist that cars be moved by the start of the next workday. We will try to preserve as much parking as we can.
