City prepares for water main project

Next month, the city will begin a $9.1 million water main replacement project that extends from Payne Park to the Arlington Park neighborhood.

The project, scheduled for completion in late 2018, is designed to replace more than 20,000 feet of aging pipes. The city is contracting with Jon F. Swift Construction and Atkins Engineering to complete the project, which cost $1.2 million to design.

The water mains in question are more than 50 years old, and much of the infrastructure is made from asbestos cement.
