In preparation for the upcoming Northeast Gateway project, the City has contracted J&T Excavating LLC to replace a 12" water main on Huntley Rd. As can be seen on the plans and the image below, the project extends from the Huntley Rd intersection with Worthington-Galena Rd to the railroad tracks approximately 1500’ to the south.
Project Update, September 18th
To date, most of the new water main has been installed with two-way traffic being maintained. To move forward the new water line needs to be tied onto the existing water line in the intersection with Worthington-Galena Rd. This and some subsequent work will require that the southbound lane of Huntley Road be closed for up to a month.
The southbound lane of Huntley Rd will be closed at Worthington-Galena Rd starting 7AM, Monday, September 30th. The detour route is shown below. Northbound traffic will continue with occasional lane shifts as work is completed across the road.
This project started in late July and is expected to take 90 days.
With the new waterline in place, tested, chlorinated and charged, crews move water services from the old main to the new, which may involve loss of water service typically lasting about an hour. The contractor notifies affected residents and businesses in advance.
We appreciate your patience during the process and encourage you to drive slowly in the work zone in order to protect the workers improving our infrastructure.
