With Labor Day on Monday, this is a four-day week for contractors working on Waterbury’s Main Street reconstruction project.
Work included progress on storm drains and sewer connections between Elm and Foundry streets.
Properties on the even-numbered side of South Main Street between Batchelder Street and Demeritt Place will temporarily lose driveway access as the road cut takes place. In addition, contractors will test the pressure of the main water line, which might result in loss of pressure or service.
Remember, there is no parking on Main Street from Elm Street to River Road, but parking can be found at 51 S. Main St., the Elm Street parking lot, Bidwell Lane, Park Row and across from the railroad tracks by the train station off Park Row. Main Street businesses are open. Also, keep plenty of water on hand in case you lose your service.
The paving of the main part of Route 100 between Waterbury and Stowe is complete.
Starting Tuesday, workers continued to pave driveway entrances and paint stripes on the recently paved side roads that connect to Route 100. Crews are also working on bridge joints at the intersection of Route 100 and Interstate 89. In addition, workers are expected to complete shoulder work throughout the course of the project.
Work will be performed from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. on weekdays, and drivers can expect intermittent lane closures and delays.
The project is set to be completed by October.
