The City of Hickory’s Public Utilities Department is replacing a section of 20-inch waterline they say is approaching the end of its useful life.
The City of Hickory received and opened bids for the Horseford Creek Waterline Replacement on January 3. The low bidder, Advanced Development Concepts LLC, was awarded the contract and began construction April 1.
Property owners, directly affected by the construction, will receive notification prior to commencement of construction on their property.
The project consists of the replacement of approximately 3000 linear feet, just over a half of a mile, of 20 inch cast iron waterline which was placed into service in 1954. The project area runs along 15th Avenue, NW from 12th Street Drive, NW to 10th Street Place, NW, then crosses Horseford Creek, and continues on 13th Avenue, NW to 10th Street Boulevard, NW.
Properties along the described route may be affected by construction of the project and t
