Crews halfway home on 3-year water main repair along Eastern Parkway

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Crews are halfway finished on a three-year project to repair a 48-inch diameter water main on Eastern Parkway.

Technology called slip-lining is being used by inserting a smaller pipe into the old one. Doing this avoids digging up long stretches of road and keep the water turned on for customers.

Six miles of pipe will be replaced.

Crews will only be working during the winter months when demand for water is less.
