City of Buckhannon announces major water line project on Meade Street

BUCKHANNON, W.Va. — The Buckhannon City Water Department is beginning an important project on Meade Street. The project involves installing a new 6-inch water line and fire hydrants, replacing the old 4-inch cast iron main currently in use.

The city anticipates no disruption to customer water service during the project. After Part 1 is completed, they will post a new notification for Part 2, which involves transferring all the customers’ water services to the new water main.

Due to this project, intermittent street closures will occur, beginning on or around March 12, 2024, and continuing through the spring and summer months of 2024. While the city cannot announce specific dates for the temporary street closures, they can provide the order for the phases.

  • Phase 1 of the project will be from College Avenue to Latham Street.
  • Phase 2 will be from Latham Street to Lightburn Street.
  • Phase 3 will be from Lightburn Street, including Madison Street, and continuing to South Florida Street.

The city thanks you for your patience and understanding during this vital water line upgrade project.
