Update on the 24" waterline project

Crews next week will begin boring to install the 24" water line along Heards Lane that connects the 59th Street pump station to the pump station at Scholes International Airport. 

The project has been underway since March 2020, with utility work performed and other extensive preparations completed to make way for the line. The waterline installation work will begin at the western end of Heards Lane and work east toward the 59th Street pump station. Crews will bore into the middle of the street to install the line, and there will be traffic markers along the roadway to direct traffic. 

We anticipate it will take crews four to five months to complete the waterline installation, with every 1,000 feet taking approximately a month. 
This is a major project and will provide improved water service to the West End. Once the line is installed, crews will repave Heards Lane. We anticipate completion by the fall of the Heards Lane repaving. 

The next road closure scheduled in the 24-inch water line project is located at the intersection of Avenue Q1/2 and 55th Street. Both lanes will be closed today and tomorrow from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. Residents will have access to driveways.
