A water main replacement will take place Thursday (weather permitting) at Hubbard and Second streets, forcing a street closure, the City of Great Bend Administration and Public Works Departments announced Tuesday afternoon. This is part of the ongoing waterline replacement project.

This street and intersection closure should happen quickly, and typical construction hours are Monday through Friday 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Every effort will be taken to restrict repairs to the hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., barring any unforeseen circumstances. 

Traffic will be re-routed to Holland, Third and Heizer streets.  

“We want to be sure things go smooth for the public,” said Public Works Director Simon Wiley. The contractor for this project is APAC out of Hutchinson. 

“Thank you for your understanding, please let the Public Works Department know if you have special questions or concerns,” he said. “The city appreciates the patience of motorists and residents while this work is being performed.”
