City of Bishop: Public Works News Release


Public Works News Release

Waterline Construction on East Line Work on a City of Bishop project to construct new waterline on East Line Street is expected to start tomorrow and continue into mid October. The project is on East Line Street between Hanby Avenue and First Street.

The construction of the waterline will impact traffic on East Line Street near the canal although at most times there should be a lane for traffic in each direction on Line Street. Temporary water shutoffs are necessary for some construction operations and notices of the water shutoffs will normally be distributed two days in advance.

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.
