Ogden Avenue Water Main Replacement Begins Monday, July 18

Construction taking place from Columbia Street to Wisconsin Street through October

Motorists can expect lane reductions and increased travel times along Ogden Avenue beginning Monday, July 18 as crews start replacing ageing water main and enhancing the water utility on the south side of Ogden Avenue from Columbia to Wisconsin streets. Pending weather or unforeseen circumstances, construction should be completed in October.

To accommodate this work, the two eastbound lanes of Ogden Avenue will be closed between Columbia and Wisconsin streets. Eastbound traffic will be narrowed to one lane and shifted to the center, shared-left lane of Ogden. With the exception of minor work on the north side of Ogden at Wisconsin Street, the westbound lanes of Ogden will remain open throughout the project. Lane closures will be limited to weekdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., unless otherwise noted. Motorists are urged to use caution and allow additional travel time when traveling in this area.

Access to Ogden Avenue businesses in the work area will be largely maintained; temporary disruptions may occur when the water main is being installed along the entrance route to businesses. Business entrances on the north side of Ogden Avenue will not be impacted. Water service disruptions to businesses on the south side of Ogden will be coordinated with each business on an individual basis and will be limited to a single shut down for a maximum of 30 minutes to transfer service from the old main to the new main.
