Main Street Reconstruction
After 30 years of planning, the project is nearly ready for construction with a tentative start date of April 2019. The project area will begin 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 2021. 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.
The Main Street Reconstruction project is broken down into four (4) segments. They are roughly: Segment 1 - Railroad Bridge to Stowe Street. Segment 2 - Stowe Street to Park Row. Segment 3 - Park Row to Batchelder Street. Segment 4 - Batchelder Street to just beyond Demeritt Place. Construction in 2019 will start in Segments 3 and 4 at the southern end of the village area. There will be some work in Segment 2 in late construction season of 2019 and in 2020. Segment 1 will be in 2020. Final streetscaping and landscaping are planned in all segments in 2021. For specific work and/or details you can contact one of team members listed under Contacts.
It is scheduled to begin on or around April 15, 2019.
