If you live along South Main Street or operate a business there, it’s best to sign up to be notified when your water is going to be shut off, and when it is safe to drink again.
Construction is continuing on South Main Street between Park Street and Demeritt Place, and customers can expect to lose their water as contractors connect fire hydrants and work on the water main.
While planned shutoffs have been as short as a few hours, a series of broken water lines in May led officials to issue notices that customers should boil their water before consuming it.
Work will continue for the road cut and pavement between Park Street and Batchelder Street. Paving of that section on the odd-numbered side of South Main Street is anticipated in the next few weeks and then the travel portion will shift onto the new pavement.
Construction activity near Healy Court is expected for another couple of weeks or more.
Access to all properties and businesses is being maintained during construction, although some temporary alternate arrangements will be worked out in advance if construction is expected to block a driveway.
Two-way traffic will be maintained during daytime hours as crews finish up reconstruction of Route 100 between Waterbury and Stowe. Most of the heavy lifting was done last summer.
The day work, scheduled Monday through Friday, will have minimal traffic impact between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. However, temporary stoppages or alternating one-way traffic are possible periodically.
The night work, scheduled Monday through Friday between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m., will require lane closures and alternating one-way traffic. Flaggers will direct drivers through the work zones.
The work should be completed in October.
