Water woes on Budge Drive

In this file photo, Town of Jackson Public Works employees work to install a temporary water pipe after the main pipe cracked underneath Budge Drive in 2016. Crews will be replacing aging sewer lines on Maple Way between Dogwood Drive and Elk Run Lane this week. FILE PHOTO BY PRICE CHAMBERS

The town’s methodical push to replace aging sewer lines each year will close Maple Way between Dogwood Drive and Elk Run Lane from Tuesday morning through Friday.

Vehicle travel will be detoured by way of Scott Lane, Alpine Lane and Powderhorn Lane. Pedestrian and bicycle access through the construction zone will be allowed at all times.

As part of the larger Smith-Simon Sewer Replacement Project that will update approximately 1,125 feet of the sewer main along Smith and Simon Lane, once construction crews complete the Maple Way section, they will move onto a new section, which could result in additional, albeit shorter closures.

All work is expected to be completed by June 15.

Hi Reid, sorry that this is unclear. It is a file photo from 2016. I've updated the caption to reflect that and, again, sorry that was unclear. — TH

Hi Reid,

Thank you for your concern. This photo is not from Monday. It is a file photo. I just updated the caption to make it a little more clear. Thanks! -SJ Audience Engagement Producer at the JHNG
