Citizens will begin seeing work for the Prince WilliamStreet project that resembles the final roadway this month.  Underground utility work is close to completion, water service connections tothe new underground water main will begin next week.  Once all waterconnections are off of the temporary waterline, the aboveground yellow pipewill be removed. There is still a small portion of sanitary sewer andstorm sewer work that are outstanding, work is progressing to complete theseutility phases of the project.  The contractor is scheduled to begin curband gutter work mid-month.  As it currently stands, the contractor for thePrince William Street project has been granted a contractual extension untilAugust 27, 2019; the latest schedule update from the contractor has indicatedthat the project will be completed in October.  

June 7, 2019

Prince William Street between Wellington Road and Jefferson Street will be closed to through traffic on Saturday, June 8 between 9 AM – 5PM. This section of road will also be closed to traffic between 8 AM – 5 PM Monday – Friday for utility and roadway work; local residences and businesses will still have access to their properties within the work zone.

The contracted 365 days for project completion is almost here; there is still a lot of work to be completed and the contractor has indicated that this contracted date will not be met. The latest schedule from the contractor shows project completion at the end of September. However, based on past performance the City cannot offer assurance that this date will be met. The City will update the public about any schedule changes from the contractor. The City is working with the contractor to accelerate their schedule by allowing some Saturday work, and allowing for flagging operations on sections of Prince William Street outside of the main work zone. Our goal is to deliver the project safely and as quickly as possible, thank you to all of the residents for your continued patience.

March 22, 2019

A right turn lane is being added to the Prince William Street project at Wellington Road based on citizen and City Council feedback. This change is achieved by eliminating the dedicated bike lanes for approximately 150 feet at the Wellington Road end of the project; bikes will be accommodated with sharrow markings on the roadway. This solution is accomplished within existing right-of-way and does not impact the construction schedule of the project.
