Monday, June 1 crews from the City of Pocatello Water Department will begin replacing the water main lines on West Clark Street, West Center Street, and Lincoln Avenue. 

The West Clark Street project will start in the 800 block and extend through the 1000 block. The West Center Street project will also start in the 800 block and finish at the end of the 1000 block. Meanwhile, the South Lincoln Avenue project will extend from the intersection of Lincoln Avenue and West Clark Street to the 500 block of South Lincoln Avenue.

Crews will work between the hours of 7 a.m. to approximately 5:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday. During the project, access to the construction area will be restricted and sections of the street will be completely closed while workers are digging. However, every effort will be made to provide local access to the area when possible. Parking will also be restricted in the construction zone and residents are asked to park all vehicles away from the area during the day. At the close of each day, access will be restored to all properties.

The work may cause short-term disruptions to water service. Individuals in and around the construction zone are encouraged to keep a supply of drinking water available.

Officials ask parents and guardians to warn children about the safety hazard and to have them stay a safe distance from the construction area.

The project is anticipated to take ten weeks to complete but due to unforeseen circumstances, the work schedule may change.

Residents who have questions about this or any Water Department projects can contact department staff at 208-234-6182.
