2017 Water Main Replacement Project

2017 Water Main Replacement Project

UPDATE: CONTRACTORS HAVE COMPLETED THE WATER MAIN REPACEMENT. CONCRETE REPAIR AND PAVING ON CROWN STREET WILL BE COMPLETED BY SEPTEMBER 21st.

The Morrisville Municipal Authority (Authority) is replacing water mains in 2017.

The project will include installation of new 8” ductile iron pipe (DIP) water main on Stockham Ave., East Palmer Ave.,  Crown Street between East Palmer Ave. and East Trenton Ave., and Hillside Ave. between East Maple up to and including the 100 block of East Franklin St..

Construction in the streets will begin at Stockham Ave. and West Maple Ave. on November 7, 2017.  We hope to complete the water main (street) portion of the project by February 9, 2018.

We will try to minimize your inconvenience, but the project will involve street excavation and the use of heavy construction equipment.  During construction, please help by observing the

following conditions:

 

  • Daily work hours will typically be 7 a.m. – 4 p.m., subject to weather and holiday scheduling.

 

  • Until construction and street repairs are completed, do not park on your street during active construction hours. If your vehicle is in the way, it may be towed.  The contractor is required to fill all excavations at the end of each day, and you may park on your street at the end of each work day, conditions permitting.

 

      During construction, there may be short periods of disruption of service, reduced pressure, or discoloration of water. We will do our best to notify residents prior to 

      any disruption.

 

  • FINAL PAVING: Final paving will take place in the spring of 2018

 

            When completed, this project will replace aging 4” cast iron pipe that will improve fire protection in the area and help prevent future disruptions of service.
