The Manchester City Council has approved an engineering agreement for a proposed water main loop project along Highway 13. The project entails looping a twelve-inch water main from the intersection of Main Street and Highway 13 to the intersection of Burrington Road and Commercial Court. The project will provide better water pressure, circulation and the ability to service property along Highway 13. The cost for the engineering agreement with Fehr Graham is just over 96-thousand dollars.
Last night, the Manchester City Council also approved a change of scope for Phase One of the Riverfront Development Project. 25-hundred dollars is needed to pay for professional services to install a new well for a kids’ water feature along the Whitewater Park.
The Council also gave the okay for the Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association Ride to come to Manchester this summer. Several downtown streets will be closed for several hours on Saturday, July 14th as the ride comes through, with a band and beer garden set up for the riders.
And the Council will wait to make a decision on upgrading the railroad crossing at Brewer Street until they receive more information about the costs of that project.
