Project: The Department of Water Management will soon be installing 2,609 feet of 12-inch
and 16-inch Water main in N. Pulaski Road. from W. Wilson Avenue to N. Elston Avenue.
Reason: The old main consisted of an 8-inch pipe and we want to expand capacity. Further. the
old pipe dates back to 1897 and needs to be replaced.
Timing: We will begin installing the new water main shortly, and expect the water main work
to be completed by late August 2013. Restoration (to be completed by the Chicago Department
of Transportation) will follow. Dates may change depending on weather and other factors. If
there is any appreciable change, we will notify you.
When the Pulaski water project completes, the Pulaski streetscape project will begin.

Traffic: We will allow traffic to flow on N. Pulaski Road outside of our working hours. When
we are working in the street, we have to close it to traffic for reasons of safety. You will always
be able to reach your home or business. even if it means putting a metal plate in place. Outside
of working hours. a lane will be left open for local traffic only.
Parking: We will post our work area for "No Parking" as needed. during work hours. We are
agreeable to parking outside of those hours. but will have to insist that cars be moved by the start
of the next workday. We will try to preserve as much parking as we can.
