Center Street Water Main Project

It has long been a goal of Water Utilities to extend one or more 12” water mains up to the Ogden Avenue corridor near Washington Street. As part of the Center Place Development at the northwest corner of 8th and Center, Oak Creek Capital Partners is required to upsize the existing 4” water main across their Center Street frontage. Water Utilities decided to take this opportunity and partner with Oak Creek Capital Partners and replace the 4” main from 8th to Ogden with a 12” main. Oak Creek Capital Partners will install the new water main in conjunction with work at the Center Place Development and in coordination with water utility staff. In addition to the watermain replacement, crews will be replacing water services up to residential property lines.


Weather permitting, construction is expected to begin the week of September 24 and end by mid-November 2018. Work will take place between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Impacts To Travel

There will be impacts to residential access in this area during working hours, which will be limited to weekdays between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. 

  • Center Street will be restricted to residential-only traffic during working hours.
  • Center Street will re-open after 5 p.m. and on weekends (Saturday and Sunday).
  • Residents should have normal access to their driveway.
  • Any aprons that are removed will be backfilled immediately with stone so that they are usable by the end of the work day at 5 p.m.
Impacts To Water Service

The replacement of the old water main to the new water main will cause brief water disruptions to residents receiving replacement water lines. These temporary shutdowns will be coordinated with each resident on an individual basis to minimize adverse impacts.

  • Water service disruptions to each residential property will be limited to a single shut down for a maximum of 30 minutes so the service to the residential property may be transferred from the old main onto the newly installed main.
  • Residents will receive a door hanger to notice upcoming water disruptions.
