Water main replacement to close portion of 7th Street

Water Main Replacement 7th Street 2021

Work to replace a water main will temporarily close part of 7th Street to through traffic.

Beginning on Monday, July 26, the intersection at W. 7th Street and Crane Avenue will close to through traffic while crews install portions of the new water main. Installation will occur in two locations within the closure, requiring two days each. Concrete replacement and curing time will extend the closure until Aug. 2.

VanKirk Bros. Contracting began installing a new 8-inch water main in the area earlier this month, which closed Crane Avenue from 6th Street to 7th Street and reduced the intersection to one lane of traffic.

Once installed, the new water main will be pressure tested and flushed to ensure they meet state health department requirements, which may cause temporary street flooding. Drivers are encouraged to use caution during this time and plan to use alternate routes if necessary.

We appreciate your patience during this period of inconvenience.
