The City of Syracuse Department of Water is installing a new water main pipe on West Genesee Street from North Salina Street to North Clinton Street north of Clinton Square in Downtown. Work will begin Monday, May 9 and is expected to last a few weeks. The westbound lane of West Genesee Street from North Salina Street to North Clinton Street will be closed to traffic until the project is complete.
This work by the Department of Water is the first of many planned projects by multiple City departments for the West Genesee Dig Once project that will continue until the fall. Dig Once projects signify an enhanced level of coordination with utility providers (water, sewer, telecommunication, gas, etc.) with the goal of replacing and repairing as much underground infrastructure as possible to minimize any future excavations made in newly paved roads.
