S. Wisner and W. High closing for water main repair on Monday, April 25

Two neighborhood streets are shutting down so the City of Jackson can repair a water main. S. Wisner Street between Oakdale Avenue and W. High Street, along with W. High Street between S. Wisner Street and S. Bowen Street will be closed to traffic from Monday, April 25 to Wednesday, April 27 for this repair. 

The Department of Public Works (DPW) recently discovered a broken water main valve while conducting its regular hydrant flushing. Repairing the valve will prevent further problems with the water main and maintain water quality in the area. 

Because the water main is underneath the street surface, the DPW is closing down the roadway to do the repairs safely. On Tuesday, April 26, residents in the closure area should prepare for low water pressure or possibly no water for a short time while crews repair the water main. The DPW plans on having the repair resolved and streets open on Wednesday, April 27. 

Drivers in the area should prepare to take alternate routes during the closure. A detour will direct drivers to S. Bowen Street. The City of Jackson is aware there is already a major street closure in this neighborhood on S. West Avenue, but it’s important to do this water main repair as soon as possible to protect water quality for residents. 

A CodeRED message is going out to impacted residents. Updates about the closure will be posted on the City website and Facebook page.
