Work to Begin in Hallowell

Hallowell – Crews will be installing catch basins and outlet pipes in Hallowell beginning on Monday, November 20th. This work is being done in anticipation of the full road reconstruction project planned for Water Street in the spring of 2018. It is being done now to comply with the sturgeon habitat work permit window. This project will have one outlet pipe flowing into the Kennebec River on Wharf Street with the other installed at the boat launch.

Wharf Street will be fully closed to all motor vehicle traffic for 14 days beginning on Monday, November 27th. Pedestrians will continue to have access, though there will be occasional closings of sidewalks and crosswalks. Signage will direct pedestrians to alternate routes.

This project is expected to be completed by December 18th.
