The temporary closure of the westbound lane of Fitzwater Street has been lifted, as crews completed the emergency work a week-and-a-half ahead of schedule. The failure of the sewer main earlier this month coincided with the beginning of the 5.5-million-dollar overhaul of Fitzwater Street, allowing quicker access to the damaged main.
With the completion of the emergency repair, crews are able to return their focus to the already-scheduled 2-year infrastructure project. As the overhaul of Fitzwater Street progresses, drivers are asked to bear in mind that the area is still a construction site, with workers oftentimes needing to stand very near, or in travel lanes. Please slow down and use caution in the area.
We appreciate your patience as crews perform these long-needed repairs and upgrades. For more information, contact Infrastructure & Development at 410-548-3170.
