 Updated Bennet Drive — There will be intermittent lane closures at Fort Shafter’s Bennet Drive in the vicinity of Bldgs. 341, 405 and 441 for the installation of a new water main line. The work occupies one lane, including the parking stalls perpendicular to the lane, weekdays, 7:45 a.m.-5 p.m., until Oct. 30.

Intermittent traffic modification is required to allow for the chlorination of the new water main line, followed by the tie-in of the new water main line to the existing line at the intersection of Bennet Drive and Pierce Street.

The preparatory work prior to the chlorination and tie-in begins after the entire length of the water main line for Phase 2 is installed.

Phase 2 has encountered delays attributed to various differing site conditions. The preparatory work prior to the chlorination and tie-in involves excavation, installation of pipe, concrete encasement of pipe, installation and welding thrust blocks, and backfilling at the point of connection. Final tie-in and asphalt paving is anticipated later this month.
