This project will replace aging and undersized 2-inch water lines in multiple locations throughout the City of Durham with larger diameter lines to improve reliability of water service and fire protection. Construction is anticipated to start early 2018 and continue throughout the year.
Construction will not occur on private properties but only in city right-of-way; however, there will be pedestrian, traffic, and noise impacts throughout the project area during construction. All property owners will be notified in advance of construction near their property. This includes any planned water service disruptions. Sound levels near active construction areas are anticipated to range between 70 and 90 decibels.
Disturbed areas along roadways and sidewalks will be restored, and lawns will be graded and re-seeded at the end of the project. Landscaped areas within the City right-of-way will not be restored to current conditions. Most work will be conducted during daytime hours, however advance notice will be made if off hours work is necessary.
