This notice is being shared on behalf of Miami-Dade Water & Sewer
On Tuesday, January 2, 2024, Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department (WASD) will begin the critical proactive rehabilitation of pipe segments on the 54-inch water main located along Red Road between West 32nd to W 44th Street in the City of Hialeah. The Department has recently been alerted that portions of the 54-inch water main will need to undergo rehabilitation immediately. Construction will take approximately four (4) to six (6) weeks to complete and will occur in phases to minimize impacts to traffic and customers.
WASD staff will begin preparing for the first phase of construction on Tuesday, January 2, 2024, with construction activities and rehabilitation of the water main commencing on Wednesday, January 3, 2024. Phase one of this project is anticipated to be completed in approximately two weeks. Work during that period will take place 24 hours a day until completed. Additional information regarding upcoming construction phases will be communicated.
While this project is ongoing, the northern and northeastern portions of Miami-Dade County may experience intermittent instances of lower-than-normal water pressure, especially during peak demand times in the early morning and evening hours. Customers who live in high-rise buildings within these areas of the county may want to ask their maintenance personnel to verify the operation of the booster pump systems. Boosters help deliver water to the higher floors of the building. Building maintenance staff may need to evaluate and temporarily adjust operating set points to facilitate continuous operation.
WASD staff will also employ mitigating actions to offset impacts to consumers. Should you need to report complete service interruptions, please call the Department’s Emergency Communications Center at 305-274- 9272.
Road closures information: Beginning Tuesday, January 2, there will be lane closures along Red Road between West 32 Street and West 34 Street to accommodate the construction work. We will be detouring traffic around the area and have proper signage in place. Police will also be on-site directing traffic. We anticipate reopening the roadway as soon as the job is completed.
