Warren Street Utilities Construction Update
From the City of Bishop Public Works department.
Work on the City of Bishop water and sewer construction project in the Warren Street area will continue through the holidays and into early January. The contractor has completed most of the waterline work on the project except for fire hydrant work on South Warren Street. Work on two hydrants on South Warren is expected to be
completed over the next week including the days before and after Christmas and New Years.
Once all water work is complete, the contractor plans to construct sewer improvements on Academy Avenue near Main Street and in the intersection of Warren and Lagoon streets. This sewer work is expected to take 1 to 2 weeks to complete. After the sewer work is complete, the contractor will have up to a week of patching and final
cleanup before the entire water and sewer project is complete. Construction of street improvements along Warren Street is expected to start as early as January and last into May 2015.
Road closures are required while work is underway. Temporary water and sewer shutoffs are necessary for some construction operations. Notices of the water shutoffs will normally be
distributed two days in advance. Patience with these closures and shutoffs is appreciated. This construction in downtown Bishop impacts traffic on city streets west of Main Street and will
cause inconvenience and delays. Closures include full intersection closures. Equipment, workers, excavations in the street, uneven pavement, and other hidden hazards will require attention, even when work is not underway. All efforts will be made to maintain access to businesses and to minimize the impacts and restrictions, but drivers, riders, and pedestrians should be cautious, take alternate routes, and be patient.
