This week watermain installation work and signal system installation has continued.  There were some minor delays due to private utility line conflicts and bad weather. The schedule for next week includes watermain and storm sewer construction between Oak Avenue and Countryside Road, signal system installation at Oak Avenue, street widening between Farm Line Road and Countryside Road, and sidewalk grading between Strong Drive and Hwy 5.

Additional watermain shutdowns will be necessary next week to tie the new watermain into the existing mains. Those properties that require a shut-down will be notified in advance with a door hanger.

This week watermain installation work has continued between Oak Avenue and Countryside Road / Strong Drive.  On Monday, the watermain will be connected at the Countryside Road / Strong Drive intersection.  This will require a water shut-off to many of the adjacent homes.  Those homes that will be impacted will be delivered a notice.  This work will also require a modification to the traffic control measures and reduced access to Countryside Drive.


Sidewalk grading and rock placement on the south side of Waconia Parkway South and work on the signal system at Oak Avenue were also completed this week.  Next week work on both the sidewalk and the signal system will continue.  Other work scheduled for next week includes storm sewer installation and road construction / widening at the intersections.
