Public Meeting

West Bryan Street Water Main Replacement Project

The project area includes West Bryan Street from Vine Street to Baker Street. The project scope includes replacement of 1,057 feet of aging four-inch cast iron water main with eight-inch PVC water main and replacement of 16 customer water service lines within the public right-of-way.

The project will be completed by BMU Water Distribution staff. Work will begin at the intersection of Baker and Bryan streets and continue west from that point. Work will occur within the public right-of-way. As a result, temporary traffic delays and lane/road closures are possible in the project area. Traffic control will be maintained during project work hours. Please use caution in the work zone and obey temporary traffic patterns. Travelers are encouraged to seek alternate routes during project work hours. BMU will endeavor to keep area residences accessible throughout the project.

Work will be performed from approximately 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, weather permitting, with an expected completion date of September 14, 2018.

BMU Director of Utilities Kevin Maynard said, “This infrastructure improvement is designed to increase water service reliability and improve fire protection for residents in the project area. The water main and system components that will be installed have estimated service lives of 75 to 100 years. Although we regret that residents may be temporarily inconvenienced during construction, the project should provide years of trouble-free water service once it is complete.”
