Table Rock Road Pipeline Project

Table Rock Road Table Rock Road Table Rock Road Table Rock Road Table Rock Road Project

Medford Water will install a new water pipeline along a section of Table Rock Road, to provide a seismically resilient connection from our water treatment plant to our distribution system and provide additional transmission capacity to support our growing community.



Project Description and Benefits
Robert A. Duff Water Treatment PlantThe Robert A. Duff Water Treatment Plant
 
  • Medford Water will install 18,000 feet of new 42" water transmission pipeline under and along Table Rock Road, from our Robert A. Duff Water Treatment Plant north of Kirtland Road to Vilas Road.
  • This project will not only provide additional water transmission capacity to support our growing community, but it will also provide a seismically resilient connection from our water treatment plant to the rest of our distribution system.
  • Contractor Pilot Rock Excavation will begin construction in the roadway in February 2024. We will provide more information as it becomes available.

Date   Update
     
July 2024   Both day and night work on the project are ongoing, focusing mainly on installation on the north side of the project, near Antelope Road. By the end of July, contractor Pilot Rock Excavation will return to the south end of the project, near Wilson Road. The goal of the night work is to minimize disruption to drivers and help keep both drivers and workers safe; please drive cautiously, the active construction zone has a 35-mph posted speed limit.
     
June 2024   The project is approximately 30% complete; crews are finishing up work near Wilson Road, then will move to the north end of project to install the next 2400 for the next several weeks, ending just south of Mosquito Lane. Work in intersections will continue to take place during a combination of day and nighttime to ease traffic issues.
     
May 2024   While roadwork continues at both ends of the project, boring will soon begin near the Table Rock Road at Bateman Drive intersection, and near Rogue Transfer & Recycling. From 7 p.m. PST May 13th through the 25th, Southbound lanes will be closed between Kirtland Road and Antelope Road; detours will be in place. This work is subject to change, and will facilitate future phases of the project, keeping it on track and running as efficiently as possible.
     
April 2024   Work will soon begin near the Robert A. Duff Water Treatment Plant (located north of Kirtland Road). During this time, paving will continue at the south end of the project, near Vilas Road. Work at intersections will primarily take place at night, to ease traffic issues. We aim to complete project activities as efficiently as possible to minimize disruption to residents and travelers, and appreciate your continued patience.
     
March 2024   Construction activities within the Table Rock Rd. and Vilas Rd. intersection will begin the week of March 4th-8th, taking place at night to ease daytime traffic issues, and lasting approximately a couple of weeks. Following that, day work will continue from Vilas Rd. towards Kirtland Rd. and our water treatment plant. Please drive cautiously and be aware of changes to traffic patterns, the active construction zone has a 35 mph posted speed limit.
     
February 2024   Near the end of February, the contractor will begin excavation in various locations on Table Rock Road between our Robert A. Duff Water Treatment Plant north of Kirtland Road, to Vilas Road, to visually confirm the presence of utility lines. Nighttime work at the Vilas intersection was delayed slightly, but will begin in early March. Following that, day work will continue from Vilas towards Kirtland and our water treatment plant. The active construction zone will have a 35 mph posted speed limit; please drive with caution.
     
January 2024   Contractor Pilot Rock Excavation will begin construction in the roadway in February 2024, beginning at our water treatment plant. Near the end of February, construction work will also begin at the Vilas Road intersection; work in the intersection will take place at night to ease daytime traffic issues. We will minimize impacts as much as possible, but these activities will result in temporary lane closures and traffic delays as we carefully install this vital infrastructure. Please drive cautiously and be aware of changes to traffic patterns.
     
September 2023   Medford Water continues to receive materials for this project, and we are currently working with our partners at Jackson County and the City of Medford on required permitting and traffic control plans. 
     
July 2023   Design and permitting of this project is complete, and the construction contract was awarded by the Board of Water Commissioners to Pilot Rock Excavation on July 19, 2023. Medford Water pre-purchased the materials for this project in order to reduce costs and to better manage the long-lead times for pipeline components; the materials are currently being delivered to our storage location. 

The anticipated schedule is November 2023 through May 2025; we will provide more information on the schedule as it becomes available.
