Water Main Improvement Project Affecting Rice St. and Wilson St.

Water Main Improvement Project will start soon. Parking along Rice St. and Wilson St. will be temporarily impacted during the construction. 

Dated "No Parking" signs will be posted at least 48-hours in advance at some of the parking spaces. Please do not park where these signs are posted as vehicles may be towed when work starts. At the end of each work day, the parking spaces will be restored. Access to your driveway will be maintained at all times; however, please allow for extra time in the event work is occurring in the street immediately adjacent to your driveway. Construction work hours are between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm on Rice St. and Wilson St.

The contractor will be replacing the existing water mains on Rice St. and Wilson St. The newly constructed water main will provide increased water flow and fire protection capacity. The contractor will be digging in the street to install the new water mains, valves, hydrants, and appurtenances. The project includes the installation of new water service lines from the new main to the existing meter boxes in the sidewalk. There will be temporary service disruptions associated with the connection of the new main to the existing system and with the service line replacement. 

Residents will be notified in advance of the planned service disruptions. The water main replacement work is scheduled to begin in July 2016 and is expected to be substantially completed in September 2016. Exact dates of construction work will be posted at least 48 hours prior to the work. The contractor will restore the street surface and pavement markings after the water main construction is completed on Rice St. and Wilson St.
