Avon Water will be initiating a water main replacement project on West Main Street the week of June 4, 2018. The project will begin at 160 West Main Street and proceed westward to 320 West Main Street. The project is expected to occur entirely within the northern (westbound) portion of the State right-of-way. The total duration of the project is expected to be approximately three months. In accordance with Avon Water’s permit issued by the CT Department of Transportation, the majority of the construction activities can be expected to commence at 6:00 AM and cease before 3:00 PM. In an effort to reduce the impact on traffic and businesses, sensitive portions of the project will require overnight work. Although night work is expected to be infrequent, in such instances working hours established by the CT Department of Transportation will be 7:00 PM to 5:00 AM.
It is the intention of Avon Water and its contractor to maintain access to each residence and business along the stretch of the project. Avon Water asks that residents/motorists be on alert for construction equipment (and minor traffic disruptions) on or along the side of the road. Avon Water is aware of the inconvenience posed by this project and requests residents/motorists to be mindful and patient of the construction activities. Avon Water further requests that any particular concerns be brought to its attention promptly so that necessary adjustments can be made to accommodate them. Avon Water can be reached at (860) 678-0001.
