They will begin on the south end of the project (close to Hartfield Place). They will be working during the restricted hours of 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
The Ford Development Corporation will maintain north and southbound traffic limited to one lane in each direction. The center lanes will be closed.
This phase of the daytime work on Montgomery Road is expected to take two to three weeks. Any additional work necessary for within the intersection of Montgomery Road and Cooper Road will occur during the evening hours. The City of Montgomery will provide an update at that time.
We apologize for any inconvenience this will cause to your commute. This project experienced a postposed start date due to the delay in delivery of the materials needed to perform the work. We originally indicated this project would start in June.
Please maintain a slow rate of speed through the construction area to allow the construction personnel to work in a safe space. Please look for alternate routes to avoid this work, if possible.
**Published May 21, 2019: The “Gateway Watermain Replacement Project” has been approved and awarded to Ford Development Corporation. The project consists of upsizing water main located in Montgomery Road between Cooper Road and Hartfield Place to increase the water flow and pressure necessary to support the Montgomery Quarter development project.
As with most infrastructure projects that provide long-term benefit, short-term headaches and inconveniences will be realized. To help reduce the headaches, some of the work will be completed during nighttime hours.
Please be patient as we complete this very important utility improvement project. Construction is expected to take place this summer and to be completed in September, weather dependent.
Regular construction updates are provided on the City’s website as work progresses. For additional information on this or other projects, please contact Gary Heitkamp, public works director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 513-792-8321.
