City of Grand Junction Begins Waterline Replacement

Waterline Replacement (1)

The city will begin waterline replacements on Monday, November 28, 2022, between 15th and 21st Streets and Hall and Bunting Avenues. The project will include replacement of approximately 7,500 linear feet of existing water main pipe with new polyvinyl chloride or PVC water main pipe. The existing 6-inch cast iron waterline is being replaced due to its age having been installed in 1960, and its susceptibility to breaks. Upgrading this waterline to PVC pipe will improve water quality, pressure, and flows for city residential customers.

Work will begin on Hall Avenue between 15th and 18th Street and then progress eastward. Between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays, the contractor, K & D Construction, Inc., will replace pipe and add a temporary asphalt patch. Because the work begins over the winter months, crews will return to complete final concrete and asphalt paving after the asphalt plants reopen in the spring.

The project is expected to be completed in the spring of 2023.
