Main Street Reconstruction

 

The Main Street reconstruction began in the spring of 2019. The project area includes Main Street by the railroad bridge and progresses through the downtown for nearly one mile just past Demeritt Place. During the 2019 season, construction was completed on water and sewer lines and storm drains from Elm Street to Demeritt Place. Underground conduits were installed from Elm Street to approximately Park Street. Temporary sidewalks and the roadway were paved over for the winter. Beginning in spring 2020 as weather conditions allow, construction will start in Segment 1 at the north end of the project and work towards the intersection of Stowe Street and Main Street.

100-year-old water lines, sewer lines and storm drains will be replaced with new lines for 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.
