Contractor on HWU project partially reopens North Elm Street


Henderson Water Utility (HWU) and our Contractor, Deig Bros. Lumber & Construction Co., announce a partial reopening of North Elm Street in Henderson.

Deig has completed the sewer installation on Myrene Drive, Sunset Lane, and Barker Road, and those streets have now been repaved, allowing us to remove the closure of portions of Sunset Lane and Barker Road, near their intersection, just west of US 41 North.

Barker, Sunset and Myrene are all now open to traffic.

Sewer installation is continuing at the south end of this project and is now complete from Springwood to Rettig. This has allowed the reopening of North Elm Street from Rettig Road to Barker Road. Due to the narrow street and right-of-way on North Elm, and the amount of “bypass” traffic on that street from US 41 North, it will be difficult to safely work in that area while maintaining through traffic. Deig Brothers and HWU have requested and the City has agreed to retain the closure of North Elm Street from 12th Street to Rettig Road. The length of this closure is required due to the lack of adequate connections from US 41 to North Elm. This closure will extend until 29 January 2021.

Local traffic within the closed portion of North Elm will be maintained, as will access for emergency vehicles, deliveries, sanitation and recycling pickup, and driveway entry, to the maximum extent possible, while maintaining safety for workers and the traveling public.

Contractor personnel from Deig Brothers will contact affected homeowners and be available on-site to answer questions, and every effort will be made to accommodate resident’s concerns. Trenches will be filled with rock at the end of each day to facilitate traffic, and flaggers will be present when one-way local traffic is necessary. Some pipe on this section of the project will be installed by horizontal directional drilling methods, to minimize disruption.

If you have further questions or concerns, contact Tom Williams, HWU General Manager, at 270.826.2421
