This May, the Department of Water Management and Reliable Contracting and Equipment Company will begin the work to install 1,056 feet of new 12-inch water main along Fairbanks Court, between Chicago Avenue and Ontario Street. Also, the water main will be replaced on a portion of Superior Street stretching 125 feet to the west of Fairbanks Court.
The old water main dates back to 1914 and needs to be replaced. All work is expected to be completed by mid-August 2019, which would include full street restoration. Dates may change depending on weather and other factors.
