Notice of Pending Construction - Emerson Avenue

This notice has been prepared to inform you that construction will soon begin on Emerson Avenue to improve the service and reliability of the municipal water distribution system. The project will involve rehabilitation of water mains and installation of new fire hydrants and valves on Emerson Avenue by the City’s Contractor N. Granese & Sons, Inc.

Sequence and Schedule: The water work is scheduled to begin starting the week of August 1st, and is anticipated to take 3 to 4 weeks to complete. The work will require several short term water service interruptions to all buildings within the neighborhood, but long term water service interruptions will be avoided through the installation of temporary water bypass. In order to take the existing water distribution system out of service to allow new water pipe and valve installation, the contractor will install temporary water mains above the ground along the proposed route of construction within the area of the attached map. The temporary water mains will be installed, disinfected, and tested; then connected to each building or side street pipe abutting the limits of water bypass. Following completion of the water main installation in the street, the buildings will be reconnected to the buried water main in the street and the temporary water mains will be removed.

Construction activities may require the closing the street to through traffic. On the days when construction is ongoing, it is important not to have any cars parked in the roadway between the hours of 7:00 A.M. and 4:00 P.M. “No Parking” signs will be posted in advance of construction and parking restrictions will remain in effect until construction is complete for that day. You will have access to your driveway and may park on the street after work hours; however, as the project progresses, certain activities may require limited access or parking.

We apologize in advance for any inconvenience you may incur during this process. The City appreciates your patience and forbearance during this important project. We feel that your cooperation will make this project a success.

If you have any questions, or require additional information, please contact Rachel McCarter (Construction Manager) at 978-973-6531.
