Brierhill Road Project Construction Update – 4/28/2017


The contractor completed the remaining fire hydrants this week, which allowed them to begin to perform the testing and chlorination requirements. The contractor also performed other underground utility installations.


Next week, the contractor will not be working Monday and possibly Tuesday while the required water main testing is completed. Once testing is completed, the contractor will begin installing the new water services later in the week. For this work, the contractor will start on the north end of Brierhill and work south in a similar fashion as how the water main was installed. This work, at times, will require excavation across the entire roadway, causing traffic delays. Depending on the location of a property’s shut off valve, or b-box, the excavation may also extend into a parkway area. This work was discussed at length during the preconstruction meeting held with the residents in March. This work will also cause water impacts for each home when their water service is being installed. All homes will be notified prior to such impact via hand delivered notices. Please see the below diagram for a visual aid of the work.

When parking over the weekends, please remember not to park in an area that is already constricted due to construction barricades, equipment, or stone piles. Please make sure there is plenty of room for other cars to pass by when parking along Brierhill Road.

Please be advised that the information communicated here is a forecast of proposed operations, which may change due to contractor availability and/or weather conditions.
