New concrete sidewalks continue to get installed on both sides of Conz Street in Northampton, MA every day! Water service boxes and water hydrant gate boxes will get replaced as the sidewalks get constructed. Two insertion valves for the water pipe are scheduled for installation in the center of the street near Wright Avenue this Wednesday (June 29, 2011), which will cause more traffic delays.
PAVEMENT RECLAIMING IS SCHEDULED FOR JULY 11th (Monday)...weather permitting. This is going to be a big day: a reclaiming machine will grind the top eight(8) inches of pavement & gravel, some material will be hauled away, and a grader will fix the slopes on the surface for proper drainage.
One lane of traffic is open at all times but traffic delays are still expected. Pedestrian and vehicle traffic are encouraged to seek alternate routes during the construction work.
