Water Line Replacement Work in Leesburg to Begin on Monday, January 8, 2018
Leesburg, VA (January 2, 2018) – Construction work to replace water main and service lines (pipes from the water main to individual customer meters) along West Market Street and Edwards Ferry Road NE will begin on Monday, January 8, 2018.
Water main and service lines will be replaced on West Market Street, between Memorial Drive and Wirt Street. Service lines will be replaced on Edwards Ferry Road, between Catoctin Circle and Mayfair Drive.
During construction, these sections of roadway will be reduced to one lane, with alternating traffic controlled by flag crews. Drivers should be alert to the change in traffic patterns and follow flag crew directions. Drivers are encouraged to use alternate routes where possible.
Construction will be limited to Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., in order to avoid the morning and afternoon rush hours.
The construction schedule may be affected by inclement weather or equipment issues. Updates will be posted to the Town website and social media accounts as necessary.
