HYDRANT REPLACEMENT SUMMARY/BACKGROUND INFORMATION - Posted on 2/5/2018
In FY 17, three non-functional fire hydrants along the west side of SR A1A were replaced as part of the water main replacement project. This year the Commission approved funding for the replacement of the remaining eleven fire hydrant assemblies along the west side of SR A1A as they are obsolete and have exceeded their useful service life.
Last month, Man Con, Inc., the contractor who performed the side street water main replacement project, was awarded a contract by the Town Commission to supply and install the above-referenced hydrant assemblies. Furthermore, Mathews Consulting, the firm who designed the improvements has been retained to perform construction management services for the duration of this project.
The Hydrant Replacement Project is due to commence on February 6, 2018 and expected to conclude in March barring any delays caused by unforeseen circumstances. A tentative schedule, including work locations, has been provided herein.
While the contractor will endeavor to minimize any disruptions to pedestrian, bicycle and traffic flow, it will be necessary to periodically close off limited sections of the walk path in order to replace these fire hydrant assemblies. The Town is asking for the cooperation from our walk path users to observe and obey signs, barricades, cones and other control devices that may deployed in these areas in the interest of public safety. While there may be some temporary and hopefully minor inconveniences, it is all for the long-term good of the community as the new hydrants will enhance fire suppression capabilities, improve the water main distribution system flushing program, and is representative of the Commission’s Commitment to infrastructure re-investment.
