Kong Working Up Valley, Takes Down Water Tower

King Kong seems to have warmed up this past week and may be closing in on his original schedule.

Crews continued with their progress along South Daugherty Street and have arrived at the Valley Street intersection where they have made the turn west and are heading  towards Dixie.  Boring crews will be working this week at the Valley and Conner Street intersection.

Work also continues on North College , aka Hwy. 3101, with completion of tie-ins and disinfection expected in the next few days.

Crews have completed the tearing down of the small standpipe (water tower) located atop Park Hill this past week. This work will lead to the installation of a new, taller tower with completion sometime in early 2011 followed by the removal of the remaining large standpipe.

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

Residents and businesses in the areas are also reminded water service interruptions may be necessary at times during the work.
