Columbia drivers should expect some lane restrictions and traffic detours downtown Wednesday.
Columbia Water & Light is scheduled to start work Wednesday to install three water valves at the intersection of Eighth and Locust.
Crews will install the water valves on an existing 8″ main. They will be used to connect to the new 8″ main that is being installed on Locust from Sixth to Eighth Street.
There will be traffic lane restrictions throughout the project. Drivers and pedestrians are asked to use caution in and around the work area.
The upgraded water line and valve installations will increase the amount of water that can be delivered to the area for consumers and firefighting purposes.
Water & Light says it will individually notify customers of any water service disruptions during this project.
