The Dept. of Public Works has announced that the work on the Downtown Watermain Project will commence around May 3rd, weather permitting. The streets that received an initial coat of asphalt last fall will be receiving a final coat. In order to complete that, crews will be out raising structures. This will take approximately 2 weeks to complete. The paving work will begin on or around May 18th. It is anticipated to take 3-4 days to complete. The first streets that are scheduled to be paved are Pleasant St., Nichols Street and City Hall Ave. Main Street will be paved on the 2nd day of paving. Please watch for signage downtown and expect delays.
In addition, Phase II of the water main project will be starting in early Summer. Parker Street, from Main Street to Jean Street and Connors Street will be worked on first. In addition, Community Development will be conducting sidewalk replacement work on Parker and Connors during the same time. Thank you for your patience.
