CHICAGO — In the city's continuing effort to replace aging water mains, crews will soon be digging up Kedzie Avenue between North and Armitage avenues to replace nearly 3,000 feet of pipes.
It is unclear when the work will begin. Ald. Rey Colon's (35th) chief of staff Martha Ramos said the work had been scheduled to begin March 21, but was put off due to bad weather.
"We haven't heard about a new start date," Ramos said.
A spokesman for the city's water department could not immediately say when the work will begin, but a fact sheet provided to nearby residents said the work would continue into July.
The 2,857 feet of 8-inch mains will be replaced under Kedzie between Armitage and North avenues, and also under Bloomingdale Avenue between Kedzie and Albany avenues.
The old pipes were installed in 1890, according to the city.
