CIP#85 - Warren Street, North Fruit Street & Kensington Road - Water Main Replacement
April 16, 2018 Update:

Due to heavy rains predicted for Monday, the contractor will not be working. They will return on Tuesday and finish installing the water main on Liberty Street at its intersection with Warren Street. All road closures and details will return on Tuesday when they will begin to install the water main on Warren Street.

All this week, buses accessing the high school will continue to use the one way pattern on N. Fruit St., Woodman St. and Westbourne Rd for drop off and pickups. On street parking on these streets during this time is prohibited.

Residents please leave your water running on a trickle when outside temperatures are scheduled to go below 32 degrees. This will prevent frozen pipes.

We appreciated your continued cooperation throughout this project and apologize for any inconvenience.
