From the office of Councian Agelasto:
The City of Richmond is upgrading the Columbus Pump Station. As a part of this pump station upgrade, the City needs to replace existing water distribution system valves with new valves. Several of these valves are located in the street just north of the Columbus Pumping Station.
In order to replace these valves in the street, the City’s Contractor will be required to perform lane closures and detours at the intersection of Boulevard (Rt. 161) and Blanton Ave. The lane closures and detours will be performed by the Contractor in accordance with their approved Work-in-Streets permit that was issued by the City.
Work for replacement of these valves in the street began on January 29, 2014 and should be completed by the end of March 26, 2014, weather permitting. Work will occur Monday through Friday between the hours of 7 AM and 3:30 PM.
