The third phase of improvements to the Hamilton water system will start next Monday, Aug. 14. The work is scheduled to last until late December with final paving scheduled for spring 2018.
One crew will start near Lincoln Avenue and Asbury Street and a second crew will start work on Union Street on Monday, Aug. 14 and will be there through mid-September.
In September, work will move to Western, Roosevelt and Central avenues and last through Oct. 11.
At the start of October, work will start on Moynihan Road and then move to Honeysuckle and Red Coach roads then to Madonna Drive and Anthony Road, with work in those areas lasting until late December.
Starting in November, work will also happen on Essex Street near Woodbury Street and on Chebacco Road.
Later, phase 3 work will also occur on Elliott, Home, Howard, Lois, Lorenzo, Pleasant and Willow streets, Cummings and Railroad avenues and Naples and Savoy roads.
The contractor for the water main replacement work will be Robert B. Our Co. Inc. Work hours will be 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. and work in front of any one property could take 1-2 days – at which time most of the road and/or driveway could be blocked during the day.
The entire schedule is subject to change and residents along the roads planned for water main construction will receive a construction notice at least one week before it starts with the projected work dates in the area of their property and the project length, said Hamilton DPW Director Tim Olson.
Residents near the project area are encouraged to move their vehicle out of the work area before work starts in the morning to make sure they have access to their car during the day.
At the end of each work day, the excavation will be backfilled or covered and there will be access at night.
The contractor has also reminded residents in the project area that excavation, construction noise and construction equipment will be in the street during construction hours.
