This project includes the removal of pavement and concrete road base, replacement of sewer and water pipes and services, improvements to drainage and stormwater treatment systems and reconstruction of the road. The existing water mains are 90-120 years of age and are near the end of their useful life. Replacement is needed to ensure adequate fire protection and domestic supply. The sewer pipes are also approximately 100 years old, undersized, susceptible to high infiltration rates and frequently experience blockages. The project includes the replacement/rehabilitation of existing clay sewer pipes with new PVC sewer mains, cured in place pipe liners (CIPP), sewer manholes and sewer service laterals. The drainage infrastructure will also be improved and two water quality units will be installed as part of this project.
Work for the 2017 construction season has ended. Phase 1 (Main St. to Sudbury River Bridge) was milled and paved, phase 2 (Sudbury River Bridge to Mt. Wayte Avenue) & 3 (Mt. Wayte Avenue to Walnut Street) have received an overlay of pavement, but crews will return in the spring to mill and pave the area to match phase 1.
