12.16.21 - Construction Update & Progress

Updated: Jan 14

The Greeneville Water Commission's contractor, Portland Utilities, has completed rehabbing the gravity sewer line between Irish Street and Main Street. This past week they worked the intersection of Depot Street and Irish Street to Cutler Street. Franklin Underground, a subcontractor to Portland Utilities, finished up the water line on the North side of Depot Street between Irish Street and Main Street and started the water line on the South side of Depot Street between Irish Street and Main Street.


Upcoming Construction Information:

GWC's contractor, Portland Utilities, finished exploratory digging on Irish Street, between Church Street and Summer Street, and started water connection tie-ins. This process will continue through next week and is planned to conclude on Friday, 12.17. This work will effect water service to facilities in the area for one day sometime in the middle of next week. The Federal Courthouse's water service will not be affected.


So, along with the current closure on Depot Street, Irish Street between Church Street and Summer Street will remain as is with detours around the current main site construction. The Federal Courthouse will still have access but the general public will need to detour around the construction.


Work is also being done on Depot Street between Cutler Street and Irish Street. This area is still accessible to through traffic as Portland Utilities has a flagman guiding traffic around the work they are doing. Currently, you will be guided down Depot Street from Cutler Street and made to detour right on Irish Street to Summer Street. Midway through next week, that will flip and the detour will take you left on Irish Street, through to Church Street. The crew in this area has been instructed to maintain access to the Federal Courthouse side parking lot at all times. Summers & Taylor are tentatively planning to start work on the North side of the box culvert down at the intersection Depot Street and College Street on Wednesday, December 15th. You'll receive an update as that date approaches.
