Morningside Drive 24-inch Waterline Replacement

Morningside 24

What is this project?

Morningside Drive, between E. Huntsville Rd. and E. 15th Street, contains an aged cast-iron 24-inch water transmission line. Other segments of this line have already been replaced due to age and frequency of leaks. This project will replace approximately 3,300 linear feet of waterline.

Why is it important?

The replacement of this line will reduce risk to nearby properties and reduce the frequency of maintenance burdens to the City of Fayetteville. It will also reduce the likelihood of water outages related to breaks.

What is the current status?

McClelland Consulting Engineers, Inc. has been selected to provide engineering services for the waterline design. Engineering design began in October 2017 and is currently still underway.

When is completion expected?

The design phase of this project will be completed in Summer 2019. Construction will begin late 2019.

How was this project funded?

This project is funded within the Water Rehabilitation project for the Water & Sewer Department.
