Current Activity

Posted Friday, August 3

The project water and sewer line installations are complete. Paving restoration has also been completed except at the end of W. Park Drive. This work will be done shortly as weather permits and W. Park reopened to traffic. The contractor will be working on minor punch list items. Tree restoration/planting will be done in mid to late October on Hillsborough Street near Woodburn.

Thanks to the residents and traveling public for your patience during this important waterline project!


Construction is underway on the 36-inch waterline replacement in the Hillsborough Street and Cameron Village vicinity. Many of the adjacent aging water and sewer lines will be replaced as part of this project. As the work progresses, adjacent property owners will receive notifications before work begins on their street. Public Utilities has a full time on site inspector for the project and will provide coordination between the contractor and property owners as needs arise.

Issues with the waterline were first discovered in August of 2016 as part of a proactive condition assessment of critical waterlines, which is an important component of the Asset Management Program. The assessment concluded the waterline needs to be replaced to avoid failure.
