Willard Water District Improvement Project Update – August 7, 2023

The project is scheduled to begin in mid-August and finish early next year, weather permitting. 

Due to the nature of the project, there will be significant activities the length of Main Street (County Road 132) in Willard.  There will also be work performed on the lower (western) end of Prospect Street, and along County Road 132A between State Route 96A and Main Street.  While we will work to minimize impacts and provide adequate advance notice, for example when work impacts specific individual driveways, we will notify residents as soon as possible.  However, there will be occasional delays, so please plan accordingly.

As part of the project, drainpipes and catch basins will be installed on Main Street and the ditches on the north side of the road will be filled.  This should eliminate flooding problems and make mowing easier for residents.  Roadways and driveways will be usable, but final paving will not occur until near the end of the project (in calendar year 2024).

Major Participants
The principal contractor performing the construction work is Wenzel Landscaping, Hunt EAS is providing engineering services, and the Seneca County Highway department will be working very closely with Wenzel.  The Town of Romulus Water Department will oversee the work and provide assistance as needed
