Masonic Avenue Streetscape Improvement Project

Project Update - 12/20/2016

Sewer Work
The contractor has completed installation of the new sewer main and laterals (connections between the mainline and sidewalk) on Masonic between Fell and Fulton streets. 

Crews continue sewer main replacement work on the Westside of Masonic between Fulton and Turk streets. Once complete, crews will drop back down to the Fulton intersection and start the same process on the east side of the block. The sewer mainline work typically takes about 2 weeks to complete on each side of the block followed by any lateral replacement work.
