Work on the Collins Street Water Main Improvement Project on Collins Street between Liberty Street and Hills Avenue began on Monday, October 9, 2023. The project is anticipated to be completed by May 1, 2024. Construction continues to progress, however a delay due to weather and unforeseen construction issues has created the need for the current traffic control patterns to remain in place longer than expected.
The full road closure required for the work on Collins Street between Ward Avenue and Meeker Avenue is anticipated to be completed and the road reopened to vehicular traffic by November 17, 2023.
Drivers should be prepared for long delays and are reminded to slow down and use extreme caution when driving through the work zone. Obey posted speed limits and signing and watch for workers or flaggers. For the safety of workers and drivers do not use cell phones or text.
