Upcoming Project: S. West Avenue between Carlton Boulevard and W. Michigan Avenue
Number of Lines Getting Replaced: 46
More on the project: Providing improved water quality for Jackson residents will shut down a busy street for three months. S. West Avenue between Carlton Boulevard and W. Michigan Avenue is closing to traffic on Monday, April 18 for a water main and lead service line replacement project.
The City of Jackson is in the process of replacing antiquated and undersized water mains. The 96-year-old water main under this section of S. West is undersized, made of cast iron, and not up to current water main standards. Replacing the water main will improve water pressure and quality for residents.
This is construction project will also replace 46 lead service lines. Repairs will be made to the street surface, sidewalks and curbs following the water installations.
S. West Avenue will be closed to through traffic during the construction period, which is expected to wrap up in late July. The street will remain open for residents to reach their homes and for patrons to reach businesses. Drivers are advised to seek alternate routes around the construction. A detour will take drivers to S. Wisner Street from W. Michigan Avenue and W. Morrell Street.
Upcoming Project: E. Michigan Avenue between Cooper Street and City Limits
More on the project: This project is scheduled to begin in late July and wrap up in late October. We will provide more information on this project closer to the construction start date.
