Missouri American Water has initiated four projects to upgrade 10,500 feet of water main in Jefferson City, investing $2.4 million.
The four water main projects, which will replace and enlarge the pipes, include:
• Industrial Drive (Phase 1): This project will upgrade the existing 10-inch cast iron installed in 1954 with approximately 2,300 feet of 12-inch PVC along Industrial from Jaycee Drive to Wilson Drive.
• Industrial Drive (Phase 2): This project will upgrade the existing 10-inch cast iron installed in 1954 with approximately 4,200 feet of 12-inch main along Industrial from Wilson Drive to Hughes Street.
• A Green Berry Road project will replace 6-inch cast iron installed in 1931 with approximately 2,000 feet of 8-inch main along Green Berry from Ellis Boulevard to Payne Drive.
• A Jackson Street and Stadium Boulevard project will relocate and replace an 8-inch water main in cooperation with the new stadium complex at Jefferson City High School, with approximately 1,800 feet of new main along Jackson Street from Woodlawn Avenue to Stadium Boulevard.
The project also includes replacing the existing 2-inch cast iron with 8-inch main on Stadium Boulevard from Jackson to Adams streets.
Work on these projects generally will take place 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Weather pending, the projects are expected to be completed by late fall, with restoration of any disturbed land to be completed afterward.
During construction, customers might experience temporary water service interruptions, discolored water and/or lower-than-normal water pressure.
