FACTORY STREET RECONSTRUCTION UPDATE


Mill Street Bridge Closure Beginning July 6th
Issued June 30, 2016
The Citys contractor, CCI Companies, is advancing the Factory Street Reconstruction Project on multiple
fronts. They are currently installing storm sewers on Mechanic Street, excavating the street to prepare for curb
installation at the east end of Factory Street, installing traffic signal conduit, and constructing a retaining wall.
Construction on Mill Street, between Factory Street and the Mill Street Bridge, will resume on July 6th, to
complete installation of storm sewers, watermain, concrete curbing, sidewalk, and asphalt pavement. During
this phase of the project, Mill Street Bridge will be closed to thru traffic.
Beginning Wednesday July 6th, MILL STREET BRIDGE (SOUTH SPAN) WILL BE CLOSED to THRU
TRAFFIC. The bridge closure is anticipated to last up to (8) eight weeks. A traffic detour will be setup to
divert traffic to Court Street Bridge. Businesses on the north side of the Mill Street Bridge can be
accessed from Main Street East/West to Mill Street.
Watermain Work:
98% of the watermain infrastructure is complete, with the exception of a major connection at Mill Street and
Factory Street intersection, which can now be completed because National Grid completed their underground
electric duct bank project.
Sanitary Sewer Work:
Sanitary sewer lateral replacement, to north side properties from the recently lined 24 sanitary sewer on
Factory Street, are complete. Replacement of the sanitary sewer main and services on Factory Street, which
serve properties on the south side of the street, will begin in July.
Storm Sewer Work:
Storm sewer work is underway on Mechanic Street, and will soon begin on Mill Street. Once national Grid
completes installation of a new gas main and services along Factory Street, storm sewer work can proceed along
the south side of Factory Street.
National Grid:
National Grid recently completed their project on Mill Street, to switch service over to the relocated
underground electric duct bank.
National Grids Gas subcontractor, Dekatherm, is advancing installation of a new gas main along the south side
of Factory Street, between Polk Street and High Street.
We will continue to provide press releases and notices to the public as construction progresses and future traffic
control measures are implemented. For further information or questions please contact the Engineering
