March 12, 2020, 8:00 a.m. update: unidirectional flushing has concluded and will continue tonight, March 12, 2020. Flushing will be completed tonight due to the high volume of traffic on some of the streets.
Hydra Tech will begin unidirectional flushing around 9:00 p.m. and will start on the first sequence in the list below and will progress in order. It is difficult to estimate how the work will progress each night so this may be optimistic but is provided to better inform everyone in the area that may be flushed.
