Cornelia Water Main Replacement
Water Main Project #: 180104
Tentative Start Date: Mid-January
Tentative Completion Date: Mid-March
In mid-January 2019, Department of Water Management crews will begin the work to install 804 feet of new 8-inch water main in W Cornelia Ave from N Halsted St to N Broadway. The old water main dates back to 1891, and needs to be replaced.
When crews are working in the street, they may close or limit it to traffic for safety reasons, but you will always be able to reach your home or business. Outside of working hours, a travel lane will be left open for local traffic only.
Crews will post the work area for “No Parking” as needed during work hours (generally 7am-4pm). Parking outside of those hours will be allowed, but cars will need to be moved by the start of the next workday. Crews will try to preserve as much parking space as possible.
We know that construction always involves inconveniences and noise. Crews will do everything possible to maintain your quality of life throughout the project, and conduct themselves as good and thoughtful neighbors in the course of their presence on your street.
