WASHINGTON PEDESTRIAN PATH CLOSURE

The pedestrian path along the southern edge of Washington Street and through the stormwater detention area is going to be closed for about a week starting on Monday, February 22nd.
Part of the project includes the installation of a new sanitary lift station and force main pipe along the south side of Washington.  The contractor will drill that force main pipe in using two pits, one within the path’s pavement at the new lift station and one farther east, but also in the path’s pavement.  Click Here for the pit locations.
The contractor will install “Sidewalk Closed” signs at Hainesville Road, Haryan Way, at the pits themselves, and at the path entrance off of East Big Horn Drive.
This work is weather-dependent, so low temperatures or precipitation can delay the operation.
