Del Norte and La Veta Avenue - Missouri American Water Main Replacement Project

MOAW has hired ECM Construction to replace the watermain and services on Del Norte and La Veta Avenue.  The watermain on Del Norte will be replaced between Bruno Avenue and La Veta Avenue and the watermain on La Veta will be replaced between Bellevue Avenue and Del Norte Avenue.  

Construction is scheduled to start the first week in June after schools are out for the summer.  The watermain should be installed in the ground within 8 weeks with service work to immediately follow.  

ECM will be responsible for all roadway restoration work on La Veta.  ECM will only be installing a temporary asphalt patch on Del Norte as the City has a planned project starting in the spring of 2023 to reconstruct the street, sidewalk and driveway approaches.

ECM is scheduled to complete their portion of the project, including road restorations by the end of November.
