Paul Gruner, P.E., P.S., Montgomery County Engineer, wishes to announce the start of a pipe replacement project and the closing of West Whipp Road required for the project.
Brumbaugh Construction, Inc., under contract with Montgomery County, will begin construction on a contract to replace a deteriorated 72 inch stormwater pipe crossing West Whipp Road. The work will also include replacing connecting stormwater pipes and replacing approximately 90 feet of 8 inch water main.
The project will require closing Whipp Road just west of Far Hills Avenue (State Route 48) beginning Monday, August 1, 2011, for approximately 30 days. A detour will be signed via Far Hills Avenue, Rahn Road, and Mad River Road. Access to all businesses and residences to and from West Whipp Road will remain open, but direct access to West Whipp Road from Far Hills Avenue and East Whipp Road will be closed.
This work is somewhat weather dependent, and updates will be communicated as necessary.
The patience of the public and their careful, safe driving during these operations is greatly appreciated.
Please contact Paul Gruner at 937.225.6040 (office), 937.422.4399 (cell), or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
