ARPA Freeport Water Main Project Gets Underway

The Freeport ARPA water main project got under way October 3rd. CL Trucking and Excavating, LLC began placing cones and barrels on the 3rd and plans to have the project completed by October 31st

 

“They are sticking to the timeline presented at the Informational meeting that was held on August 29th, says Village President Bill Andrews. “It’s coming along nicely.” Occasionally there may be intermittent lane or road closures on Freeport Rd and East St during the construction.  While the construction is occurring in the southeast section of the Village, it will impact all residents on the water system. “This project will increase water quality and reliability for all Village residents,” states Freeport Village Water Operator Duane Weeks.

 

The project is one of two funded for the Village of Freeport. The ARPA grant totaling $839,000 was part of 6 million that the Barry County Board of Commissioners released through an RFP process in 2021. The second part of the project will include a major overhaul of the Village water tower. That project is in the design phase with Williams and Works. The bidding process will begin in late 2022 with the project slated to start in the Spring of 2023.
