City Of Springfield DPW Notified Of Two Water And Sewer Construction Projects Beginning

June 26, 2013 –Springfield, MA- The Department of Public Works has been notified by the Springfield Water and Sewer Commission (SWSC) that they will be initiating 2 construction projects on July 1, 2013 that will have a significant impact on traffic.

Allen Street at Bradley Road

Due to the deterioration of an existing sewer line, the sewer main in the area of the intersection of Allen St and Bradley Road will need to be replaced immediately.

Based upon a schedule provided by the SWSC, work will start along Bradley Road on July 1 and will continue to its intersection with Allen Street, then proceed a short distance toward Wachusett Street.  It is expected that the entire construction process will take 4 weeks +/- to complete.

Due to the nature of the work, left turns from Bradley Road onto Allen Street, and left turns from Allen Street onto Bradley Road will not be allowed during a majority of the construction period.  Travelers are highly advised to seek alternate routes during the construction period and avoid the area if possible as heavy congestion is expected.

Construction signs, detour signage and variable message boards will be installed later this week to alert motorists of the upcoming work.

Armory Street

The Springfield Water and Sewer Commission will be installing a new water main on Armory Street from roughly Taylor Street to Genessee Street.

Based upon the schedule provided by the SWSC, the work will begin the week of July 1, 2013 and continue through mid-August.  Due to the nature of the work, at times access to Albany Street from Armory Street will not be allowed. Also to facilitate the work under the two railroad bridges, Armory St may be closed completely in the area. Most times Armory Street will be restricted to one-way traffic or alternating one-way traffic.

Travelers are highly advised to seek alternate routes during the construction period and avoid the area if possible as heavy congestion is expected.

Construction signs, detour signage and variable message boards will be installed later this week to alert motorists of the upcoming work.

All inquiries on the project should be addressed to the Springfield Water and Sewer Commission, (413)787-6256 ext. 111
