Heat Doesn't Deter Kong As Work Continues

Businesses and residents in the King Kong Project areas are reminded to keep a good supply of fresh drinking water as well as a supply of flushing water on hand in the event of a service interruption. Crews attempt to keep the interruptions as minimal as possible, but unexpected issues could result in longer water outages.

August 9, 2010

Even with the 100 plus temperatures this past week, the King Kong project is moving right along.

Beginning Monday, August 9 crews will begin installing a new 6 inch water line along East Plummer from Seaman to Bassett.
Other crews will be cutting the street along West Plummer from Ammerman to Dixie in order to connect services to the new water main previously installed.

Line flushing and pressure testing will begin on the 12 inch main on West Plummer from Daugherty to Neblett, on the 6 inch main on North Lamar from West Moss to the railroad and on the 6 inch main on South Marsh from Conner to Sadosa. These services will also be performed on the 4 inch line installed along Calhoun Street.

Curbing crews will begin repairing and replacing curbs removed during the utility work. They will start along South Seaman between Valley and Garvin, College Street from Commerce to the railroad, and along East Conner from Seaman to Bassett.
Once the curbing is completed crews will begin patching the asphalt.

PREWARNING NOTICE: Crews will begin replacing a water line along South Madera from Plummer to Sadosa within the next few weeks. It is hoped the work will be completed before school starts in late August.

With the construction of the new water tower underway, the normal traffic route around the City Park will be interrupted throughout the summer.

Citizens and visitors need to be observant of all traffic signs and personnel as well as the movement of heavy equipment and vehicles in the area.
General traffic not allowed in the immediate area of the construction site.
One-Way traffic flows to be converted to Two-Way in some areas.
Watch for signs!

Please remember when travelling in these construction areas to be on the alert and watch for crew members as well as heavy equipment, trenches, etc.
