This project will begin on or after March 9. A new storm sewer pipe is being installed along the south side of Oak Street from Irongate Drive to just west of Ford Road. This project is expected to continue through the end of May, weather dependent.

No full closures are anticipated.

The south lane of eastbound Oak Street will be closed during the construction between Irongate Drive and the Walgreen’s entrance. Local access for residents and businesses within the project area will be maintained but short-term driveway closures will be necessary.
