Beginning in April 2017, the MWRA will begin installing a water supply main in Prospect Street from the Stoneham Line to the intersection of Prospect Street and Hopkins Street.  This water main will provide redundancy to the town’s water distribution system.  Additional information will be provided in early spring 2017, prior to work commencing.  Should you have any questions or want additional information, please contact Michael Collins, P.E. Town Engineer at (781) 246-6308.

Avon Street Water Main Replacement

Beginning the week of April 3rd, 2017, construction will commence for replacing the water main on Avon Street (North Avenue to Main Street) and across Main Street (Avon Street to the eastern sideline of Main Street).

The water main construction will be the entire length of Avon Street from North Avenue to Main Street.  Fire hydrants and water services will be replaced within the public right-of-way.  Temporary water main will run along the gutter line of both sides of the street during most of the project.

The street is anticipated to be open during construction; however, there may be delays.  The work is expected to be completed in the summer of 2017 (weather dependent).

For any questions or concerns, you can contact Michael Collins, P.E., Town Engineer or Eric Sherman, P.E., DPW Senior Civil Engineer at (781-246-6308).
