Freedom Blvd. Water Main Replacement Completed


The current road work on Freedom Blvd. discovered an old abandoned water main, and the water services crews were asked to remove what they now know was a 100 year old abandoned water main.

Crews removed a half mile of the abandoned riveted steel water line and then installed a new 20″ water main. The work was done in the evening to lessen the inconvenience to our community as some traffic delays already existed due to the¬†Freedom Blvd. Reconstruction Project. Being that it was a time sensitive project, working evenings helped to complete the project in just 8 working days instead of what could have been weeks.

The City appreciates the patience and support throughout the Freedom Blvd. Reconstruction Project.
