E. Sixth Street (SR 123) Water Main Extension

2/20/2024: Water will be shutoff on 2/21/24 from 7am-4pm as a part of the Sixth Street Water Main Extension Project at the following locations: 
Sunnybrook, from Sixth to Fourth
Sixth Street, from Anderson to Community Park
Fifth Street, from 153 E. Fifth to Sunnybrook
Fourth Street, from 306 E. Fourth to Sunnybrook
Door hangers have been delivered to all those affected. 

1/25/2024: Due to weather delays, the project start date has been pushed to next week.

The City of Franklin is extending a new 12” water main along E. Sixth St. (SR 123) from Anderson Street to approximately 230 feet east.  Associated Excavating Inc. intends to start work on Wednesday January 24th, weather depending.  The work will necessitate the closing of Anderson Street and E. Sixth Street.  The closures will be kept to a minimum.  The total project will take approximately three weeks, which includes all pressure and purity testing. Most of the work is along the south curb lane of E. 6th St. which will require closing the southernmost lane to traffic.  Traffic will be shifted to the north and maintained.

Later this year the City will begin the construction of new 500,000 gallon above ground water storage tank behind the old JEMS building adjacent to Community Park. This construction will include the construction of a booster station and generator.  A new 12” water main will be extended from the new High School water main that was installed in 2023.  This storage tank replaces an old standpipe on E. Third St. and will provide a redundant water supply to the Downtown area and the rest of the City.  The City received a $1.55 million dollar grant from the Ohio Department of Development to help fund this project.
