Union Avenue Area Water, Sewer and Stormwater Improvements
The project includes the replacement/rehabilitation of existing clay sewer pipes with new PVC sewer mains, cured in place pipe liners (CIPP), sewer manholes and sewer service laterals. The drainage infrastructure will also be improved and two water quality units will be installed as part of this project.
This project is scheduled to begin in the Summer of 2016. The limits of the First Phase of the project, which will occur in 2016 and potentially the Spring of 2017, will be from the Union Avenue at Main Street intersection to the Sudbury River Bridge. The Second and Third Phases, that will occur in 2017 and potentially extend into 2018, will extend from the Sudbury River Bridge to Walnut St.
During construction a traffic detour will be in place 24/7. Access to all properties along Union Avenue will be maintained via the detour.
This project began in August, 2016. The limits of the First Phase of the project, are from the Union Avenue at Main Street intersection to the Sudbury River Bridge.
Before roadway construction began, work was completed on water quality units on each side of the Sudbury River. As the water quality work must be done within a short window of time per the Army Corps of Engineers, it had to be completed prior to roadway work beginning.
A southbound detour is in effect from Main Street to Mount Wayte Avenue. The detour will be in place 24/7 during the construction season.
Access to all properties along Union Avenue will be maintained via the detour. Project managers are working closely and coordinating with residents, businesses, Framingham State University, Bowditch Field events and the Callahan Senior Center.
This important infrastructure project will demobilize during the winter and begin again in the spring of 2017.
