Work Shifts to West Side of Water Street in Hallowell

Hallowell - As the reconstruction of Water Street in Hallowell continues, work will shift to the west side of Water Street beginning on Monday, July 23rd.

Crews will set up jersey barriers from Central Street to Winthrop Street on the west side with chain link fence, fabric and lights. In addition, the installation of a water main will take place on Temple Street.

Varying traffic patterns will be controlled by flaggers when needed.

This $5.89 million project will continue through November with breaks for holidays, including Old Hallowell Day on July 21st. This aggressive schedule ensures the majority of the work will be done in 2018 with the contractor returning in the spring of 2019 to do final paving and other finish work.

Sargent Corporation of Old Town is the contractor for the project.
