Conneaut Water Line Project – Update

The Water Distribution and Waste Water Collection Division has started to make service line connections in conjunction with the Conneaut Avenue water main line replacement project.  This work will require local day closures along the project area on Conneaut, from Wintergarden to Cedar Lane and is expected to last till the end of April.

Once all of the service line connections are made, a complete closure of the Conneaut Avenue/Wintergarden intersection will be required.  This closure is anticipated to occur in May and is expected to last approximately a week while the water mains on Conneaut and Wintergarden are connected.  Once a timeline is established for this portion of the project, the information will be distributed along with the applicable detour routes.

Questions about this work may be directed to the Water Distribution and Waste Water Collection Division at 419-354-6277.
