These projects have has helped our environment, provide safe streets, sidewalks, and drinking water, as well as quality recreational facilities. We are proud of the work that has been completed over the past 25 years and that work will continue in 2021 -2022.
On Monday, July 19, 2021, work will begin on Court Street from Main Street to Church Street. The project involves replacement of century old water and sanitary sewer pipes, installation of a new storm sewer, curb, gutter, sidewalk, and reinstatement of the asphalt roadway. This work is expected to take place throughout the summer and conclude in early autumn.
During construction, Court Street will remain open to local and emergency traffic from either end; sidewalks will be open as practical and reasonable during the construction period. Municipal staff has met with property owners and residents of the area who will be directly affected by the project to discuss the project, and to mitigate disruptions.
Motorists are advised to plan their routes accordingly. The patience and understanding of the public is appreciated during the construction period.
