State Street Project
Marshfield Utilities is replacing buried underground lines that were installed in the early 70s and are near end of life. Most of the facilities being replaced are in and along backyards on private property. Underground light circuits in the area and few road crossing will take place with minimal impact. As part of this project, we are also converting 525 feet of overhead power line to underground power line along the Wildwood Trail west of Adams Avenue. This will eliminate the need to maintain the required clearnace around energized lines by trimming trees. In time, this piece of trail will be able to regain a more naturalized look and feel.
The east third of this project began in 2018 and is complete. The remainder started in August 2019 and is nearing completion. When suitable digging conditions return, usually around late May, the remainder of this project will wrap up.
State Street Project Site Map
With the weather warming up, construction will be starting soon. We have several projects coming up and we will be working with on the following streets:
1. Cleveland Street from Doege Street to Central Avenue: This project is starting. Temporary water is starting to be laid out. Project is going to start at Central Ave. and head westward. Expect the road to be closed East of Walnut for the near future. West of Walnut will remain open until further notice.
2. 26th Street from Maywood Avenue to Washington Avenue
3. Galvin Avenue from 22nd Street to 24th Street
4. Downwind Drive from Central Avenue to Cherry Avenue.
We will also try to do some valve repair during the season. Those will be single day activities and we do not currently have a schedule set for those.
