 The project areas include the following streets:

  • Bartlet Street
  • Carmel Road
  • Castle Heights Road
  • Central Street
  • Cheever Circle
  • Chestnut Street
  • Elm Street

Update: On Friday, June 4th, the Town’s contractor will continue water main work on Walnut Ave. This will include a shutdown of Carmel Road (#41-79) and #50 Walnut Avenue (see map) from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm. 

The construction may require some adjustments in neighborhood driving patterns; however, every effort will be made to minimize this inconvenience. There may be detours and delays. Local traffic and school buses will be allowed to access residences. Emergency vehicles will not be prevented from responding to calls.

There will be planned water main shutdowns, for which notices will be distributed to affected residents and businesses beforehand. We would like to thank you for your cooperation during these projects. For questions or concerns, please contact the Engineering Division at 978-623-8770 or
