Water line project to disrupt downtown traffic, service

Work on water lines next week will force the overnight closure of downtown streets and service interruptions next week.

The project means that Main Street will be closed from midnight to 8 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 2, and Church Lane from midnight to 8 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 3.

The work involves disconnecting and capping water lines, and the Aquarion Water Co. also plans to shut down water service along the affected main lines. Property owners in the area have been notified of both the road closures and the water-service disruption.

If additional work is required, more road closures or water shut-off may take place Friday, Dec. 4.

Questions should be directed to the Department of Public Works at 203-341-1120.
