Last week the Village-contracted GM Pipeline crew severed the roadway between Xenia Avenue and Allen Street to replace a 20-foot section of water main with a 12-inch pipe (using GM-contracted local police officers to direct traffic down to one lane). The work is part of the Village’s bottleneck elimination project to increase water flow for fire safety to the commercial district at the south end of the town. The work to widen the main between Herman and Kahoe streets should be done in a week, according to Johnnie Burns, Village electric and water distribution superintendent. Next, the Village will test the new pipe and reconnect it to the grid, then install 25 residential water meters before mid-November. Burns hopes the Village can replace the sidewalk by the end of December, but if not, the concrete work would be completed next spring.
