Road, Sewer Work Causing Traffic Frustration For Many
If road work and sewer repairs are causing you to be more than a little frustrated, take a deep breath, relax and remember YOUR tax dollars are going to work to make the roads better for YOU. Yes you are the one who benefits from all this work. How often do we get to actually see our tax dollars being put to good use for us?
Are you still feeling a bit unloved with all the signs telling you to stop, slow down and use caution? Are the one lane crawls and detours pushing you to the boiling point? Relax it will all be over in a few weeks. Until then, here are the latest work areas to avoid if possible.
- Triplett St. is getting a total redo. The crews were even out on Sunday grinding up pavement to get ready for resurfacing.
- Byers between J.R. and Veach will close Monday Sept. 26 for about 4-6 weeks for sewer work and repaving.
- Work continues on Scherm Rd. That had better be one sweet ditch/sewer project.
- Rinaldo Rd. at the Riverport closed week while they work on repaving.
Abby Shelton with the city also sent us these closings:
- Regional Water Resource Agency will close Conway Avenue from McClarty Street to west Ninth Street beginning Monday, September 26, 2011 for sewer repairs.
- Regional Water Resource Agency will close Hickman Avenue from West Ninth to West 11th Street beginning Monday, September 26, 2011 for sewer repairs.
- Regional Water Resource Agency will close Saint Ann Street from West 24th to West 25th Street beginning Monday, September 26, 2011 for sewer repairs
- Regional Water Resource Agency will close 20th Street from J.R. Miller to Triplett Street beginning Monday, September 26, 2011 for sewer repairs
- Owensboro Municipal Utilities water crews will close the south lane of Second Street at Hanning Lane through the weekend for concrete work.
As with all road work and sewer repairs traffic will be detoured appropriately. Please use caution and attention while traveling in this area. Workers are trying to concentrate on doing a good job and should not have to fear for their safety.
Nobody likes to have disruption to their daily routine but if we all work together it will be a safe, efficient and productive end of the road/sewer repair season. It will also make things alot easier on the suspension of our vehicles in the months and years to come.
