Daisy Street is still closed at the intersection of Hillsborough Street and it is important that no vehicular traffic drives through this closed section. The top of the watermain valve that was recently installed in that location is close to the surface and vehicular traffic could cause the valve to break.
Currently, Pipeline Utilities is working with the City’s Public Utility Department to remedy an old watermain that is leaking near the Daisy Street intersection. This leak is causing the work at Daisy Street to be delayed and the street to remain closed longer than anticipated. As soon as the leaking watermain is contained the work will resume along Daisy Street. A crew will finish installing the new watermain along Daisy Street and then the roadway will be paved, allowing vehicular traffic to resume use of the street.
The City and Pipeline Utilities understand that this is an inconvenience, and we thank citizens for their understanding during this process. Please respect the workers and the work zone signage. The signage and barricades are in place for your safety and the safety of construction crews.
