Construction on a major drainage and paving project could cause traffic delays in Watertown Square for nearly 2 months, possibly more.
Work begins on Tuesday, Oct. 11 on areas of the Municipal Parking Lot behind CVS, as well as a section of Spring Street, just off Main Street and the big intersection in the Square, and is expected to finish by the beginning of December 2016, according to a letter to the Watertown Department of Public Works from the contractor, D&M Civil.
In the letter, the contractors said there could be “minor traffic/detour inconveniences” in the area of Spring Street at the corner of Summer Street. There may also be dust and noise generated by the work.
The project includes installation of underground drainage chambers and piping, along with excavating and repaving the asphalt in the construction area. The project is being built on behalf of The Residence in Watertown senior housing building, which sits at the corner of Spring and Summer streets.
Construction will take place between Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. and 4 p.m.
