Beginning perhaps as early as today (Monday) the City of Jasper and the U.S. Economic Development Administration will be making improvements to the aging water infrastructure underneath US Hwy 231 through the heart of the city.

The objective of this project is to replace approximately 13,000 linear feet of existing water lines that are on average 80 years old.

Components of the project are:

Water Line Installation

Pressure Testing & Chlorination of Water Lines

Service Line Installation

and Road Repairs*

The water supply and pressure improvement project will consist of 3 phases.

The first phase in the Water Supply & Pressure Improvement Project runs from the intersection of Bartley Street & US HWY 231 going east to the intersection of Clay Street & US HWY 231.

The schedule for Phase 1 is tentatively set for today October 8th and thru November 30th but that is subject to change.

A portion of US HWY 231 will be reduced to 2 lanes. Motorist are encouraged to find alternative routes if possible.

Phase 2 will see the project resume along 2nd Street from Clay one block to Newton and will continue north along Newton Street to 15th Street before going east one block to Main at Springs Valley Bank.

The third and final phase will stretch along 231 and Newton Street from Matthew Lane just north of the water tower to 30th Street and Northwood Avenue before continuing east on 30th Street to Lottes Drive.

The two final phases are currently in the planning process.

In 2019 The Indiana Department of Transportation will begin their own project for final repairs consisting of milling and resurfacing of US HWY 231 where the water lines have been replaced.
