Tucson Water recently submitted this release to the public regarding a portion of the new recycled water pipeline is scheduled to be installed beginning early June along Macarthur Street and Michigan Street.
The route goes from the I-19 frontage road on the west to Lundy Avenue on the east. It will then run on Lundy Avenue to Pennsylvania Drive. Below is information on how the construction of the pipeline will affect
that neighborhood area:
- The section of roadway where pipeline construction is taking place will be closed during work hours to through traffic and signed “Local Traffic Only”. Crews will cover the trenches with steel plates at the end of each workday so you will be able to drive over the trenches.
- Employees from the construction contractor PCL, will notify residents 2-3 days in advance of the trenching in front of your home and will make every effort to allow access when necessary. It will take 2-3 days for the construction activity to progress beyond your residence.
- During construction hours, there will be open trenches in front of your homes. During these times we recommend that you park in an alley or along a section of street away from construction activity until the steel plates are placed back over the trench.
- Construction crews will work Monday through Saturday, 7:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
Recycled water a valuable water resource for our community and is used to irrigate many of our community parks and schools, and using it helps to conserve our drinking water.
