The final phase of a three-year multi-phase water main replacement project along Eastern Parkway begins on June 3. The last 1.4 miles of the project focuses on the water main along Lexington Road to and including Stilz Avenue. An engineering solution allows Louisville Water to repair the main, preserve the character of the Eastern Parkway and Lexington Road corridor, without disrupting 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 158-year history.
