George C. Hall & Sons excavation contractors has been hired to replace a damaged private sewer lateral located on Route 1 (Elm Street) immediately south of the Park Street intersection.

The company plans to start this project Wednesday, Nov. 10 and if possible will complete it in one day, though it is possible it may be necessary to complete it the following day.

Route 1 traffic will be reduced to one lane in the construction zone for the duration of the project; flaggers will regulate the traffic. Anyone who expects to be traveling through the work zone during this period would be advised to seek an alternate route if possible.
