2019 Water & Sewer Rehab Projects
Schedule 1: North 27th Street West Water Main Replacement
The 'North 27th Street Water Main Replacement Project' includes the replacement of over 5,000 feet of water mains on North 27th Street between 6th Avenue North and Rimrock Road. The current 16-inch cast iron water line, originally installed in 1945, has deteriorated with age and experiences frequent breaks. This project will replace the pipeline along with all valves and hydrants along the corridor. This project will allow the City of Billings Public Works Department to better serve their water customers, reduce annual system maintenance costs, convey water more efficiently to other areas of the water distribution system, and sustain a safe and reliable infrastructure. Construction will start in February 2019 and the total construction time will be approximately 4 to 5 months. The project will be constructed by COP Construction. DOWL is the City's engineering consultant that prepared the design and will be overseeing construction. . Project updates will generally be provided on a weekly basis during construction by email and on the City’s website.
