Lane closure on North Ashley Street due to service line replacement

VALDOSTA — The City of Valdosta has released the following statement:

The City of Valdosta will replace a 2-inch water service line located at 1601 N. Ashley Street.

 

On Saturday, Sept. 14, from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m., crews will prepare for the replacement of the 2-inch water service line by saw cutting a portion of N. Ashley Street.  The work will require one lane at a time to be closed while the street is being cut. Traffic control will be set up to alert motorists and direct them through the construction area safely.

 

On Sunday, Sept.15, beginning at 8 p.m., the actual replacement of the 2-inch water service line will begin. The work will require digging up the water main, creating a new water tap and laying a new 2-inch water service line across N. Ashley Street.  During this particular work, ALL lanes on N. Ashley Street will be closed between E. Moore Street and College Street, and adequate traffic signage will alert motorists of the detour via Iola Drive and Marion Street.  Establishments in the area will continue to be accessible while the work is being completed.

 

The 2-inch water service line replacement is expected to be completed by the end of day on Monday, Sept. 16, weather permitting.

 

As always, motorists are urged to drive with caution and follow the traffic warning signs for their safety and the safety of others.
