Central Street Water Main Replacement

Crews from the Springfield Water and Sewer Commission will replace a water main within Central Street between Main and Ashmun Streets beginning on or about April 30, 2018. Construction is scheduled to begin April 30, 2018, and continue for approximately six weeks. Typical construction hours are Monday through Friday from 7:00 AM to 4:00 PM.

Due to the nature of this work, changes to traffic patterns and traffic delays are expected. Central Street will be reduced to a single lane for eastbound traffic during construction hours. Westbound traffic will be detoured through Morris Street. Local traffic and access will be managed with posted signs and police details.

The existing water main within the Central Street work zone dates to 1900. The Commission is proactively prioritizing and replacing its aging infrastructure throughout the city in order to maintain high-quality and reliable water service into the future.
