Buffalo City Works Director Les Hook reported to the city council that the NW Water Pipeline Project has officially begun construction, with 240 feet of pipe installed in the ground the first day of construction Tuesday, April 15th.
The Burritt Street Reconstruction Project is coming along he said, but the project is estimated to be nearly three weeks behind schedule, mainly because of delays due to weather.
Although behind, he said he is confident they can catch up to schedule with a few more nice weather days.
The water line on the project is complete and supplying water to residents in the area.
Storm drains were expected to be completed last week.
Dirt work has begun on top of the hill to get the grade set and paving is scheduled to begin the first week of May.
Old iron water supply lines were found in the project and have been replaced by the city with new PVC lines, he said.
Hook also reported on a city road project that will begin in the area once Burritt Street is paved.
Hook said a fire hydrant reported as faulty on Williams Avenue was tested and is working fine.
Finally, he reported that city crews have begun working on alleyways in the city, completing two on the north end of town.
