Anticipated Construction Dates

Work is anticipated to begin in mid-to-late July 2022.  Once excavation work begins, it is anticipated to take approximately three weeks to complete construction.

Typical Work Hours

Work hours are typically Monday to Friday from 7:00AM to 3:30PM excluding holidays.

Roadway Closure/Detour Information

Depending on where the work zone is located each day, residents may need to access their residences from either the South Street end or the Glenwood Road end of School Street due to daily roadway closures during construction hours.  Franklin Street or State Street can be utilized as a detour route during construction.  Roadway closure signs will be posted, and police details will be on-site during construction hours.

Project Updates

September 27, 2022 Update

Water Main installation was completed on September 26, 2022.  Houses will be connected to this new water main and disconnected from the temporary bypass water main later this week and into next week.  Once all houses are connected to the new water main and the temporary bypass water main is dismantled, trenches will be repaved and any lawns that were disturbed during construction will be loamed and seeded.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Andrew Stack at astack@tewksbury-ma.gov or by calling (978) 640-4440, ext. 256.

Water Main Construction on School Street is currently on hold due to water main piping supply chain delays.  The Town’s Contractor, Cedrone Trucking, is hoping to receive additional piping late next week.  Once piping is delivered, they will resume construction activities.  We apologize for the delay and for any inconvenience this causes.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Andrew Stack at astack@tewksbury-ma.gov or by calling (978) 640-4440, ext. 256.
