WALLACE ST., EMERALD AVE. & 30TH ST. WATER PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Project: The Department of Water Management will soon be installing 1,993 feet of 8-inch and 1,707 feet of 12-inch water main in S. Wallace Street, from W. 29th Street to W. 31st Street, S. Emerald Avenue, from W. 29th Street to W. 31st Street and W. 30th Street, from S. Emerald Avenue to S. Wallace Street.
Reason: The old pipe dates back to 1887 and needs to be replaced.
Timing: We will begin installing the new water main shortly, and expect the job to be completed in early November 2015. This includes restoration. Dates may change depending on weather and other factors. If there is any appreciable change, we will notify you.
Traffic: We will allow traffic to flow on S. Wallace Street, S. Emerald Avenue and W. 30th Street outside of our working hours. When we are working in the street, we have to close it to traffic for reasons of safety. You will always be able to reach your home or business, even if it means putting a metal plate in place. Outside of working hours, a lane will be left open for local traffic only.
Parking: We will post our work area for “No Parking” as needed, during work hours (7am- 4pm). We are agreeable to parking outside of those hours, but will have to insist that cars be moved by the start of the next workday. We will try to preserve as much parking as we can.
