Hot weather/out of service wells prompt Madison Water Utility to ask that customers voluntarily limit outdoor water use.
Allis/Spaanem/Shaffer Water Main Installation
About the Project
Late-August to Mid-October
Water Main Work
A new 12-inch water pipeline will be installed on the north side of Allis Avenue (between Turner Avenue and Shaffer Avenue) and on the east side of Shaffer Avenue. There will also be new pipeline installed through the Allis Avenue and Spaanem Avenue intersection. Several new fire hydrants will be spaced out along this pipeline and installed in the terrace on the same side as the new pipeline. Construction operations may include but not be limited to:
Sawing of asphalt pavement
Water pipeline installation
Reconnection of Allis and Shaffer Avenue water services
Backfill, soil compaction, and base course placement
Paving operations of asphalt
General site maintenance, cleanup and restoration

Properties within the project limits and on Spaanem Avenue will experience an average of two water outages as the new water main gets connected to the existing system and water services are connected. Water outages may last up to 8 hours but will typically take less than 4 hours to complete. Properties will be notified at least 48 hours in advance of planned water outages.
The areas where new water pipeline is getting installed will be closed to through traffic until the streets are restored. Driveway access to properties will only be limited during times that work is taking place directly in front of a driveway, otherwise typical access will be coordinated throughout the project.
Bus Routes & Pickup Locations
There are no current bus routes within the project area, and bus routes nearby on Turner Avenue and Buckeye Road are not expected to be altered as a result of this work.
The street pavement will be removed and replaced where necessary to allow for the pipeline installation.
