COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – Lanes on Veterans Parkway will be closed due to maintenance with Columbus Water Works starting Friday, Dec. 16. 

Columbus Water Works’ contractor, Mainlining, LLC will be replacing a defective six-inch water line valve and the work will involve closing off the southbound turn lane and northbound left lane on Veterans Parkway from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The contractor will then continue their cleaning and lining work along 8th Street between Veterans Parkway and 6th Avenue.

During this time, the northbound right lane on Veterans Parkway between 7th Street will be closed from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.

Pending any unforeseen conditions, emergency or weather delays, all work is expected to be completed by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 20.

Columbus Water Works employs many maintenance and rehabilitation programs, such as this cleaning and lining project, to prolong the life and productivity of our infrastructure and prevent water line breaks.
