MUB to begin stormwater work along Baldwin Street

Work part of DOH roundabout project

During the first week of June and continuing into July, Morgantown Utility Board will begin installation of approximately 1,570 feet of 18-inch gravity storm line and eight manholes along Baldwin Street. The project is scheduled to progress from the intersection with Patteson Drive toward University Avenue.

Road closures along Baldwin Street will be necessary during the work hours of 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Crews will make every effort to reopen the street after 4 p.m. and on weekends. Road surface restoration will occur as work progresses. Detours may also be necessary where Baldwin Street and University Avenue intersect and also where Baldwin Street and Patteson Drive intersect.

This work is being performed on behalf of the West Virginia Department of Highways in support of the DOH’s roundabout project at the intersection of University Avenue and Collins Ferry Road. In preparation for this work, MUB will mobilize equipment and station supplies at/along Baldwin Street where possible.

Anyone with questions or concerns should contact MUB at 304-292-8443 or email
