Original release - June 2, 2016
Springdale Water Utilities has begun work on East Emma Ave. to replace all sewer services and reline the sewer line from Willella Pl. to the A&M Railroad tracks. This project will be completed by Brothers Construction, and their contract is for 150 days.
In order to complete this project, crews will have to block the road and re-route traffic at various times. There are two message boards, one by Jones Center and one by the railroad tracks, informing oncoming traffic of road closures when necessary.
These upgrades will improve the sewer services to the homes and buildings along East Emma Ave.
