Special to The Gazette
Work has begun on the City of Emporia’s downtown sanitary sewer project and will continue until June 2020.
The main project area is approximately South of 12th Avenue, East of Congress Street, West of Union Street, and North of the railroad tracks. Construction work will mostly be within the city’s alleys and some streets.
Adjacent parking lots and alleys will have restricted access when the contractor is in the immediate area.
Alley refuse services may be relocated and will be coordinated with sanitation crews when necessary during construction.
Pedestrian and vehicular traffic is asked to use caution while in the immediate area of the construction project.
Updates will continue throughout the construction period to keep the public informed and safe. For further information, contact City of Emporia Engineering at 343-4260.
