Louisville Water will repair 6.6 miles of the Eastern Parkway water main in a three-year, multi-phased project. An engineering solution allows Louisville Water to repair the main, preserve the character of the Eastern Parkway corridor and not disrupt water service for thousands of customers. The project involves an engineering process called slip-lining that eliminates the need to close the entire thoroughfare during the repairs. The project will create traffic detours but customers will not lose water service while the new main is put in place. This is the largest water main repair project in Louisville Water’s 156-year history.
Phase 2A starts in November 2017 and involves replacing 1.7 miles of main along Eastern Parkway from Crittenden Drive at I-65 to Beargrass Creek near Poplar Level Road.
