West End Replacement Location: James Way, near 5 Cities Drive
East End Replacement Location: James Way, near Shamrock Lane
Projected Start Date: December, 2016
Projected End Date: March, 2017
Traffic Impacts: The replacement operation is expected to take approximately 12 weeks to complete. The excavation and pipeline installation work will be conducted in a series of sections, one-at-a-time. While each section is being worked on, eastbound and westbound traffic on James Way will be reduced to one lane in and around the construction area and traffic will alternate between directions as controlled by flaggers. Lane reductions will be in effect during work hours only, Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., and will be marked with traffic cones and signs. People passing by a work site may see an excavation, equipment, vehicles and traffic control signage. The nearby community may also hear some work-related noise and notice an occasional natural gas odor.
Construction Update: Construction activities will continue the week of February 13, 2017, on James Way between Highland Drive and Shamrock Lane. Construction crews will be saw-cutting and grinding on the street, welding pipe, installing pipe, and backfilling. Please watch for detours and reduced speed signs near large construction equipment. Traffic control measures will be in place like lane reductions marked with traffic cones and signs during working hours.
