Contractors for Orange Water and Sewer Authority will begin night work to replace underground water pipes on South Estes, Willow, and Conner Drives beginning Monday, May 19.

The work is scheduled between the night hours of 9 p.m. and 6 a.m., from Sunday through early Friday.

The first phase will take place at the intersection of Estes Drive and Franklin Street. Workers will occupy the center lane of Estes, and maintain two-way traffic.

Over the next few months, work will proceed east from there, in sections of between 50 and 100 feet.

The project is expected to be completed by the fall, weather permitting.
