Clyde Street waterline work set to begin
The Town of Franklin has contracted with Buckeye Bridge, LLC to replace approximately 3,630 linear feet of waterline on Clyde Street. This project will begin at 7 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 23. Work will begin at the town water tank on Clyde Street and move down Watauga Street to Lakeside Drive. This is a project that will last for several months with work being done between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
No work will be done near East Franklin Elementary School while school is in session. Work may be done while students are out for holiday break in late-December. The Town will send out updates related to road closures and any planned service interruptions weekly.
There will be lane reductions and periodic closures on Clyde Street as the first phase of the project starts. All will be marked with appropriate signage and flaggers utilized when necessary. Detour signs and barricades and other traffic control implements will be in place.
