KUB Lane Closures at White Avenue

Posted: 05/21/2014
May 21, 2014 - KUB and its contractor will implement lane closures along sections of White Avenue between James Agee Street and Fourteenth Street daily from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. beginning on Wednesday, May 21, and lasting through Tuesday, June 3.

Construction begins on a summer-long PACE 10 wastewater collection system improvement project that is scheduled to last through August 2014 in the eastern section of the Fort Sanders neighborhood.

The work will be isolated to individual streets/areas, and construction will not take place over the entire neighborhood at the same time.

Street parking may be temporarily restricted in the immediate construction area to facilitate safe access for equipment and workers.

Construction methods will include sections of open-cut trench replacement, as well as trenchless rehabilitation, which includes lining of the existing pipes and pipe-bursting methods. The condition and depth of the existing pipe, as well as accessibility, will determine the construction method used. Selected manholes will also be replaced or rehabilitated as part of this project.

As work areas shift, follow up advisories will be issued. More information on this and other KUB construction projects can be found at www.kub.org.

Some listed closures may extend beyond the scheduled times depending on the conditions encountered during excavation and construction. Appropriate traffic control measures will be in place at each location to assist motorists traveling in these areas. Due to the ongoing presence of workers and equipment, motorists are advised to use extreme caution and expect temporary delays in these areas.
