If you haven’t already figured it out, Belt Street from Augusta to Montgomery avenues is closed today so crews can install a water line. Drivers are being detoured Cannon Street.
The water line installation is part of a larger project to rehabilitate a number of residential streets in the area of Belt St. and Indiana Ave. The project is a full-depth rehabilitation of Belt St. northbound from the alley at Augusta/Nora to Montgomery avenues, and Cannon St. southbound from Nora to Montgomery avenues; a grind and overlay of Belt St. southbound and Cannon St. northbound as well as the remaining streets; and replacement of a 12-inch water line.
The overall project will repair the following streets: Belt St. from Nora to Montgomery avenues; Cannon St. from Nora to Montgomery avenues; Buell St. from Hemlock to Montgomery avenues; Hemlock St. from Shannon to Montgomery avenues; Indiana Ave. from Hemlock to Ash streets; Knox Ave. from Belt St. to the cul-de-sac; Mansfield Ave. from Belt to Elm streets; Montgomery Ave. from Nettleton to Belt streets; Nora Ave. from Hemlock to Ash streets; Shannon Ave. from Hemlock to Elm streets.
The $1.2 million project is funded with money from the 10-Year Street Bond.
