Construction activities to replace the watermain from Maple Street to Washington Street will re-commence on or about Friday, April 12, 2013, weather permitting. Watermain replacement work will be followed as quickly as possible with resurfacing of the road between South Street and Washington Street. The scheduled completion date for this final phase of work is May 24, 2013. Work hours will typically be between 7:00 AM and 7:00 PM.
S. Franklin Street will be closed to through traffic during the course of the project. A detour will be established using Maple Street and Water Street for through traffic.
SOUTH FRANKLIN RESIDENTS: Residents will be able to drive through the work zone in the northbound direction to access their homes, normally with little or no delay. There will likely be a few instances when water service to your home is disrupted in order to make new tie-ins to existing lines. The shut-down usually lasts four to six hours. You will be notified a day in advance of planned shut-down periods so that you may plan accordingly. There is also the possibility that breaks in the existing watermain may occur during construction due to the age and condition of the line, in these instances the water department will issue notices (boil alerts) on a case by case basis. Your patience is appreciated.
We anticipate a smooth and safe installation, although we know there can always be unpredictable events. If you have questions or issues that arise during the project, you can address them to the Contractor or Village staff on the job site or use the contact list below.
