Phase II Main Street Water Line Project Starts

Phase II of the North Baltimore Downtown Waterline Upgrade Project is finally underway, with roads closed during active construction, and intermittent closures after hours. Caution is advised when traveling in the construction zone, which is North Main from Broadway north to Walnut Street.

There were 4 bids for the project, with Underground Utilities of Monroeville, Ohio having the lowest bid of $160,948.00. Completion date is November 15.

Residents are sure to remember the issues during Phase I, which ran from the CSX rail line, north to Broadway. There were several delays due to dealing with CSX construction requirements and schedules, along with unexpected discoveries, of old pipes, etc., in the over one hundred year old water/sewer system.

This phase does not involve CSX, therefore it is hoped that the entire project could be completed by November 10. However, as with any construction project, delays can be expected, including weather.  Water/Sewer Superintendent Brian Roberts is in communication with the businesses in the 200 block of Main Street. He will notify them when their water service will be effected. In most cases water service will only be off for an hour or so.

This project is Phase II of a multi-phased, multi-year process. Projects will continue as funding becomes available.
