Louisville Water is thrilled to announce that our work on and around Frankfort Avenue is almost done! The orange barrels were moved today and the road is fully reopened.
This $17 million dollar project increased the size and reliability of critical water mains near the Crescent Hill Water Treatment Plant. By investing in our community’s infrastructure, we can ensure that nearly one million people continue to have access to high-quality drinking water every day.
We’re also sprucing up the neighborhood near the plant! A new sidewalk on the north side of Frankfort Avenue provides a safe path along the railroad tracks for walkers and joggers. Crews replaced the sidewalk between Stilz and Reservoir avenues and added new tree wells. We plan to plant 126 trees later this fall.
The Kentucky State Transportation Cabinet is scheduled to repave Frankfort Avenue in the spring of 2023.
The Crescent Hill facility is the largest water treatment plant in the state and an integral part of Louisville Water’s massive distribution network. Newly installed, 60-inch and 42-inch water mains will provide additional supply lines and more flexibility to move and reroute water to customers.
We thank everyone for their patience throughout this vital project.
