Kenmore Water Main Project Update – Jan. 4, 2018

The Department of Water Management (DWM) and NPL Construction crew will begin the work to install 2,002 feet of new 8-inch water main in N. Kenmore Ave., from Bryn Mawr to Berwyn. The old water main dates back to 1889 and needs to be replaced. We expect the water main work to be completed by the end of March. Restoration of the street, sidewalk, and parkways will follow in mid-April. Dates may change depending on weather and other factors.
Crews plan to begin Phase One of the project on Monday, January 8, weather permitting. Crews will send cameras through all sewers in the project area to assess location and depth. Following cameras, crews will begin to remove and replace sewers beginning at the northern end of the project area. There will be no parking in the project area during this time. Crews will maintain an open lane of traffic during the work.
