Replacing a main installed between 1920-1930 is no easy task. But thanks to advances in technology, Louisville Water devised a plan to significantly minimize environmental impacts and neighborhood disruptions, while increasing the lifespan of this critical main.
The project, covering 6.4 miles, will be completed in phases over the course of three years. The first phase of the project, slated for Nov. 2016 through mid-April 2017, involves work on 2.2 miles of the water main, running from Eastern Parkway and Beargrass Creek near Poplar Level Road to Grinstead Drive near Lexington Road and Cherokee Park. The work requires some road and lane closures but customers will continue to have a reliable water source throughout the duration of the project. Check the website often for updates regarding closures and detours.
