The Henry County Public Service Authority (PSA) will be replacing a 16-inch transmission line at the intersection of Virginia Avenue and Seminole Drive in Collinsville from June 6-10.
In February, the PSA was called to repair a water main break at the same intersection. While inspecting the system, PSA staff noted the potential for future pipe failures due to a deteriorating pipe under Seminole Drive. The project to replace the transmission line is intended to alleviate those concerns. Following the replacement of the line, Gary Smith Construction will begin repairing any curb and gutter damage made during the process. This is expected to last another 3-4 days.
A lane closure request was granted by the Virginia Department of Transportation to ensure the safety of construction employees throughout the project. The lane closure will likely be in effect for eight working days. In addition, the entrance to Seminole Drive from Virginia Avenue will be closed for the duration of the project. PSA staff is working to identify alternative solutions to minimize disruption of water service to the affected communities throughout the process.
