Water service on surrounding streets will be impacted until work is complete
Syracuse, N.Y. – The City of Syracuse Department of Water will close lanes in both directions the intersection of West Genesee Street and Leavenworth Avenue beginning Thursday, August 18 at 2 p.m. to install a new water main and valving at the intersection. While work is being done, traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction at the intersection. The project is expected to last 8 hours. Actual project start dates and timeframes are contingent on favorable weather.
Water service on the following streets will be impacted until the project is complete:
- West Genesee Street from Plum Street to Geddes Street
- Leavenworth Avenue from West Genesee Street to Park Avenue
- Park Avenue from Plum Street to Leavenworth Avenue
- Baker Avenue from Park Avenue to Wilkinson Street
If residents have concerns about their water at any time, please call Cityline at 315-448-CITY.
This work by the Department of Water is part of the West Genesee Dig Once project that will continue throughout the year. Dig Once projects signify an enhanced level of coordination with utility providers (water, sewer, telecommunication, gas, etc.) with the goal of replacing and repairing as much underground infrastructure as possible to minimize any future excavations made in newly paved roads.
