Fox Farm Road closure starts Saturday for water main river crossings

UPDATED Oct. 13 6 p.m.

Construction is continuing for the water main river crossings and will require a road closure on Fox Farm Road.

Road closure for water main river crossing installation

Beginning 7 a.m. Oct. 12, Fox Farm Road will be closed between Juniper Drive and Park Garden Road and remain closed until 7 a.m. Oct. 16.

The closure was initially scheduled to end Tuesday morning, but according to a Sunday afternoon update from the city, unforeseen issues with the pipe installation had extended the road closure.

Motorists should expect short delays in their commute due to a detouring and/or construction flagging.

Access to local residences will be maintained.

The city has contracted with The HDD Company for the installation and they have hired United Materials to install new 24-inch water main along the east side of Upper River Road. The work will extend from the north side of Blanchard Road through the intersection of 19th Avenue South and into Verde Park.
