UFES Construction Update – October 14, 2021

Work along South Delaware Street

The City’s contractor will be installing sheet piles on South Delaware Street, near the intersection with Saratoga Drive, starting on Monday, Oct. 18, 2021 and lasting through the week. During this work, residents can expect some short-term inconveniences such as loud noise.

Please note: Approved work hours along South Delaware Street are between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

We thank you for your continued patience and cooperation as we make steady progress toward the completion of this much-needed solution for our aging sewer system.
