Augusta Utilities is preparing to begin construction of the Alternate Downtown Water Feed Project. The project entails installation of a new 24-inch water line to provide an additional drinking water feed to the current distribution system. The project route takes place between Highland Ave and Heard Ave with the line being placed within road rights-of-way and permanent easements. Residents may begin seeing heavy equipment in the area as early as the end of this week.
Motorists and pedestrians are encouraged to exercise caution in and around the area. Signage will be placed, and all are asked to note and follow signs, detours, and other applicable safety notifications.
The project is anticipated to conclude in the summer of 2021.
