Special Project Update -Barrick Road Water Main Project

.After over a year of planning with Janesville’s engineer and financial advisor, a contract was awarded to Blazek Corporation for the Barrick Road Water Main Improvement project.   This project added a second water line under the river starting near the water tower on the west side of town. This 8-inch line was bored under the river, east past the school to the Pine Street connection.  Several dead-end lines were eliminated on connecting north and south streets, eight new fire hydrants were added, and the water volume was increased substantially. A 708,000.00 SRF Construction Loan was used to fund this project.  The majority of this project was completed by October 31,2017, however, 100 percent completion and final approval/acceptance isn’t expected until this spring.
