Sewer work will disrupt traffic
Sewer work along Kenmore Avenue that is expected to start late next week will close several major intersections along that road at specific points during the project.
The work, which is part of the giant sewer and water project for which the city has contracted W.C. Spratt, is expected to start next Wednesday or Thursday.
At that point, it will close the interesection of Lafayette Boulevard and Kenmore Avenue for an estimated period of two weeks. We will have more information on this project in the paper later this week.
At later points in this project, which is anticipated to take three to four months, the intersections of Kenmore Avenue and Hanover Street and Kenmore Avenue and William Street will have to close while work is performed. Other portions of Kenmore will also be closed periodically as work proceeds to replace the entire sanitary sewer line from Lafayette Boulevard to Sylvania Avenue.
In the meantime, if you want to learn more about this work and the street closures, you should go to a meeting that the public works department will hold on Monday between 4:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. on the second floor of City Hall. Come at any time during the meeting to look at project plans and ask questions.
Here is a flyer the public works department is distributing about the meeting.
