A contractor replacing water mains and service lines in the oldest infrastructure parts of Logansport will begin work soon, starting the project by documenting work areas with pre-construction videos and photos.
F&K Construction, out of Flora, Indiana, are scheduled to start excavation and replacement work for Logansport Utilities in various parts of the city in mid-to-late February 2024. The project was approved in January 2024 and awarded grant money from the Indiana State Revolving Fund (SRF) to help fund the project.
The areas selected for replacement have been identified as the oldest infrastructure areas with consistent problems with water main breaks or leaks. F&K Construction will begin recording pre-construction videos and photos as documentation of the work sites and the surrounding areas this week. Residents should not be alarmed if they see cameras or drones being used over the next couple days in the areas marked on the pre-construction video map. The company is only recording project locations before work has begun to allow for proper restoration efforts after work is complete.
During construction, roads may be reduced to one lane or closed off and parking may be affected at times, depending on the scope of work needed in certain spaces. Notifications will be given to residents in advance and drivers are urged to use caution in work zones.
The project is expected to take 18 to 24 months to complete.
