Minnewashta Parkway Update
Work has begun on the lift station south of Round House park. This work includes excavating pits between Kings Rd and Glendale Dr to burst the existing pipe for the new force main from the lift station. Someone from the construction crew will be onsite 24/7 while the pump station is in bypass mode.
The contractor has completed testing the new water main between Red Cedar Point and Kings Rd. The watermain has been but back in service. Once the force main work is completed the contractor will begin working on the services to each home. The contractor has also began preparations for the next phase of temp water from Glendale Dr to Linden Cir. Manhole castings have been lowered in the roadway to prepare for the reclaiming of the bituminous surface tentatively on July 8.
From time to time as residents are going through the road closed to through traffic zone in the construction area there will be construction activities underway and you may be asked to wait or find another way around the construction taking place. Please be courteous within the construction area as workers and equipment will be in the vicinity and they are trying to be safe. When in doubt, please stop and ask a crew member which way is the easiest to go to where you are trying to get to.
The road closed section between Red Cedar Pt and Kings Rd is planned to be re-opened prior to the July 4th holiday. Please use caution going through this area as it will be only re-open to thru traffic.
