The Union Avenue Utilities Improvement Project – Contract 1 work will resume in April 2018 with the paving of Union Avenue between the Sudbury River Bridge and Walnut Street.

Shortly thereafter, the Contract 2 portion of the Union Avenue Utilities Improvement Project will commence. Construction for Contract 2 will be conducted in phases and is set to take place over two construction seasons, 2018 and 2019.
 
Affected roadways will include Union Avenue between the Sudbury River Bridge and Beech Street, Lincoln Street between Union Avenue and Evergreen Street, Evergreen Street, Learned Street, Myrtle Street and Thurber Street.

The existing water mains are 60-130 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 50-100 years old, undersized, susceptible to high infiltration rates and frequently experience blockages.  Contract 2 work will include the removal of pavement and concrete road base, replacement of sewer and water pipes and services, and improvements to drainage and stormwater treatment systems.

Information regarding traffic detours will be updated as the project progresses. Access to all properties along the affected routes will be maintained via detour routes.
