Water Main Improvement

Kentucky American Water has begun a water main improvement project in Lexington on Winchester Road between Hume Road and Man O War Boulevard. The project, which will total approximately $1.1 million in investment, involves upgrading to a larger one-and-a-half miles of water main installed in the 1950s.

The new water lines will better accommodate recent and future development in the eastern part of Fayette County.The project is expected to have minimal traffic impact since construction will be off the roadway, but motorists are still encouraged to be extra cautious when traveling through the work zone for their own safety and for the safety of those working on the project.This effort is scheduled to conclude by March 2021, depending on weather conditions and other construction factors.
