Water Main Work On Lawrence

This isn't technically in Uptown, but it surely will affect us.  Head's up from Ald. Pawar:

"In yesterday's newsletter, we listed all the major improvements in the 47th Ward being led by my office.  One of those major efforts is the transformation of Lawrence Avenue. My vision is to connect the pedestrian friendly and retail characteristics that we see in Lincoln Square and Andersonville to Lawrence Avenue.

Over the next few years, over $100 million dollars of investments will be made on Lawrence Avenue (new Metra station, Lawrence Avenue Streetscape, Mariano's/L.A. Fitness, etc). Kicking off these investments is replacement of a 100 year old water main on Lawrence Avenue. The details for this first project are below.

Contractors working with the Department of Water Management will be beginning work on Monday, November 5, to replace the water main dating back to 1893 that runs underneath Lawrence Ave. from Leavitt to Clark. 

The expected completion date for the pipe work and concrete cap is December 17, 2012."  Read the rest of the announcement here.
