More of Queens County's ancient piping is getting replaced in the coming months. Work will start on May 26 to replace the water and sewer pipes that run between Union and Summer Street.
The water lines that lie under Main Street in Liverpool have been largely untouched for over 100 years, and have deteriorated quite badly.
Preliminary work will begin putting in temporary water lines for residents, businesses and churches in that area, followed by the start of construction near the junction of Union and Main, and progressing toward Summer Street.
‚ÄúThese infrastructure upgrades are vitally important for our current and future residents. This work is being done in advance of a failure of the system,‚ÄĚ said Brad Rowter, Director of Engineering and Public Works with the Region of Queens Municipality.
Due to the scope of this project, traffic detours will be put in place.
The Region of Queens Municipality says they will cooperate to the greatest degree possible to allow ongoing pedestrian, vehicular and church access during the construction. Detours and traffic rerouting will be in place 24 hours per day, 7 days a week until the project is complete, with work on-going until early Fall.
Questions about the project may be directed to the Region of Queens Municipality for further information phone: 354-3455, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
