NU work continues
Newport Utilities(NU) is nearing another project milestone in it's project to put down new water and wastewater piping on East Broadway. NU Waterworks Manager Clint Hammonds says work will move westward toward the Cosby Highway intersection today. The new area will be fenced off today and will block right turns from the Cosby Highway to Broadway. There also will be sawing on Wednesday, on the railroad side of the Cosby Hwy intersection which will block right lane of westbound traffic for a short time on Wednesday. Saturday evening, beginning around 9 PM, the utility will close the right lane of westbound traffic in the Cosby Highway intersection to install the last of the water line on the west side of Broadway. "The next few days may be a little more disruptive to the traveling public, but the good news is once paving is completed, by Tuesday morning, traffic will be able to travel to McMahan Ave unimpeded. This will open up the route to Northport, Parrottsville and Greeneville," says Hammonds. He encourages motorists to use patience this week when traveling through the construction area and understand that traffic is about to improve!
