Dear Residents of Raymond,

The North Water Main Looping project is set to begin very soon.  Graff Construction of Toledo, IA tentatively plans to have crews on site to begin construction the week of September 17th.  This project includes the installation of approximately two miles of water main primarily along Conard Rd, allowing for a second connection to Waterloo Water Works system at Elk Run Road and completing an important water main loop for the City of Raymond.  Water main installation will take place this Fall, with final restoration and seeding to take place in the Spring.

In the coming weeks, you can expect to see underground utility location markings and flags.  These markings and flags are used to identify conflicts and warn the Contractor to the presence of underground utilities.  Please do not disturb the markings or the flags as they are vital throughout the construction process.

Likewise, construction stakes and hubs will be placed to mark out the water main alignment and elevation for the Contractor.  Please do not disturb these features.

For residents living near the project corridor, please use caution when traveling near the construction zones, as there will be some debris, stockpiles of materials, equipment and/or personnel working at various times of day.  One-way traffic will be maintained along Conard Road at all times during construction.  We appreciate your cooperation in following signage and alternating traffic during lane closures.

Patience is appreciated as Graff Construction, the City of Raymond, and MSA work together for a successful and timely completion of the project.  Should you have any questions, comments or concerns, please feel free to contact Jake Huck with MSA or Raymond City Hall.
