Main Street Reconstruction
After 30 years of planning, the project is nearly ready for construction with a tentative start date of April 2019. This project will start on Main Street just south of the railroad trestle and progress through the downtown for nearly one mile just past Demeritt Place. The entire project is anticipated to be completed by the end of 2020. 100 year old water lines, sewer lines and storm drains will be replaced with new lines with a life expectancy of another 100 years.
Utility lines will be placed underground in the core of the downtown between the Congregational Church to Park Street, and on Stowe Street from the Main Street intersection to the dry bridge over the railroad. New sidewalks, landscaping, informational kiosks, wayfinding signs, hanging flower baskets, flags and banners will enhance our entire downtown.
Saturday work may take place on Main Street, but not in the main business core of the downtown.
There will be 48-hours notice before switch overs for properties along Main Street and the side streets. Each property will be contacted in advance and considered for its individual needs such as: restaurants may require switch overs before or after open hours, while residential properties may have work completed during the daytime.
