Foster Ave Sewer Project, and Mariano's Fresh Market

Funny how I was just talking about the need for more sewer construction projects, and alderman Laurino (of the 39th ward) sends out a community news blast with the Foster Avenue Sewer Project as the first thing mentioned.

Laurino's staff member writes the Foster Ave sewer line was installed in 1928, so they're 90 years old. Construction begins THIS MONDAY.

The neighborhood is also getting a new grocery; Mariano's Fresh Market, a Milwaukee-based chain run by a former Dominic's CEO.

The news blast:

Construction Season
If you've been traveling around the city by foot, bike, car, or bus, you've noticed that construction season is in full swing in Chicago and the 39th Ward is no exception. Our biggest construction project is the Foster Avenue Sewer Project.  Beginning Monday, August 27, Foster Avenue will be closed from Pulaski to Central Park, for the installation of a new sewer line.  Street closures are inconvenient for residents and businesses, but the new sewer will replace lines that were installed in 1928 and will help alleviate flooding in the Albany Park area.   We appreciate your patience during this project.

Mariano's Fresh Market Opening Soon!
