Water Mains Project Update – 1/22/2022

Date Posted: Saturday, January 22nd, 2022

Update on the Magnolia Water Mains Project:

The repaving of the trench locations affected by the project will be delayed until the first week of March 2022. Unfortunately, the delays in materials and unexpected sub-surface issues encountered by the contractor last year pushed the repaving past the time where the local hot-mix plants shut down for the winter. Although a few plants remain open longer than others, the supply volume from them is not predictable enough to proceed with repaving all of the trenches. The existing patch material needs to be removed and the new hot-mix needs to be onsite and ready to replace it immediately, or else you are faced with a big empty trench.

March is just a few weeks away so we again apologize for the inconvenience.

Thank you for your patience in recent months as we attempted to improve the water delivery system in the Town.
