Update on Water main project

Thu, 04/01/2021 - 5:30pm

The water main replacement project is moving into a different phase for the next two weeks. The water main is laid out and the process of switching over water services to the new main will begin next week. High Street will remain closed to through traffic. It will remain open, one way (towards the school) during school drop-off (7:30 to 7:50 a.m.) and pick-up (2:30 to 2:50 p.m.). It will be difficult on a daily basis to know where the road will be closed as the crews work to switch over water services. There will also be construction on Payne Road.

Please follow signs and leave extra time for travel.

If you are a water customer, your water will be temporarily shut off when your service is switched over to the new water main.

Construction will begin to replace the water main on lower Water Street as well. Temporary water lines will be placed from Rebecca towards Old Harbor dock.

Thank you for your continued patience during this project. Call the Water Company at (401) 466-3232 or email biwater@ new-shoreham.com for questions and concerns.
