Road closures approved for Utica Pike, Allison Lane

Parade closures also approved in Jeffersonville

JEFFERSONVILLE — Road closures for the Utica Pike sewer project were outlined at the Jeffersonville Board of Public Works meeting Wednesday.

Wastewater Superintendent Len Ashack said the closures, which are set to begin Thursday, will last about one month.

“[It] will serve the folks along Utica Pike,” Ashack said of the sewer project. “More than that, it also serves the folks in Oak Park.”

The sewer system along Utica Pike, and the required connection to residents living in Oak Park, will only apply to people are operating off of septic tanks and that are not currently connected to Oak Park sewer system,Ashack said.

Among the subdivisions affected are Wathan Heights, McBride Heights and Cherokee Terrace.

The extension of sewer service will not affect people already on the Oak Park sewer system. The Oak Park sewer project is contingent upon this Utica Pike sewer project begin completed first.

Road closures will begin on Utica Pike — which will be closed at the intersection of Allison Lane to the 3000 block of Utica Pike. The closure is set to be in effect until Friday, Dec. 7.

The remaining closures will take place in stages on Allison Lane, starting at Utica Pike and moving northwest toward Middle Road. The first closure will take place Dec. 10 to Dec. 19; the second closure will start Dec. 20 and run through Dec. 28; the third closure will be from Dec. 31 to Jan. 4; and the fourth stage of road closures will be Jan. 7 through Jan. 11.

Mayor Mike Moore offered his concerns on having both Allison Lane and Middle Road closed at the same time, as the project on Middle Road is nearing its completion.

“That whole section of the city, one of those two different roads is how they get around,” he said. “I’m good with this as long as Middle Road is open,” he said of the closures planned for Allison Lane.

City Engineer Andy Crouch said the anticipated completion date for the Middle Road project is Dec. 9.

The requested closures were unanimously approved.
