The Springfield Pike Water Main Replacement project will begin in January. This project consists of replacing the century old Springfield Pike water main with a new main from Reily Road to West Mills.

The contractor, Adleta Construction, will start laying out the water main and saw cutting the pavement during the first week of January. Then, Adleta will start laying the new pipe under the road surface. Tentatively, Adleta plans on beginning new pipe installation at Reily Road and proceeding south.

After the new main is completed on Springfield Pike, the contractor will begin tying in existing water mains at intersections and installing new water taps for customers along the Pike. All properties, from West Mills to Reily which have water service lines connected to the Springfield Pike water main, will have new copper water service lines installed from the new water main to approximately the right-of-way line (curb box/stop in yard). The contractor will then reconnect the existing private water line to the new water service. This work will require a temporary water outage and residents will be notified. There may be other water outages during the project; the city will attempt to notify residents with our Code Red telephone system. Please sign up for Code Red on Wyoming’s website if you have not already done so.

Although traffic will be maintained, there will be daily lane closures at work locations throughout the project which is scheduled to be completed in June 2018. There may be occasional parking restrictions on Springfield Pike where the contractor is working, and you may notice construction vehicles temporarily parked along side streets. Finally, driveways, sidewalks, and lawns will be restored by the contractor at the end of the project. Driveway access will be provided throughout construction, although there may be an occasional delay to allow for equipment to be moved. Underground utility marking and miscellaneous tree pruning will begin shortly.

The City asks for your patience while work is progressing. If you have any questions, feel free to call Mike Lippert at 821-0037 or email him at mlippert@wyomingohio.gov. This project will precede the upcoming road reconstruction project scheduled to begin this summer.
