Cal Water officials say that each street will be completed in one work shift and the entire job is anticipated to take approximately six days, ground conditions permitting.
Cal Water’s work is also being done in coordination with the City of Visalia’s Downtown Streetlight project and will include removing temporary asphalt patches along their water main trenches and repaving with new permanent asphalt.
Additionally, work will also include paving around existing water valve covers along Main Street from Locust Street to Santa Fe Street. Lane restriction is planned for the work on Main Street and one lane of traffic eastbound will be maintained at all times.
