CAMDEN — Main Street in Camden has been full of construction activity as a new sewer main was laid from the corner of Atlantic Avenue to just past the Camden Deli the week of April 12.

As the Main Street sewer line work wrapped up, the work to lay the sewer line on Atlantic Ave. began. Work on Commercial Street to connect the new sewer main to the pump station is also taking place during this time.

The new sewer main will replace an older main that runs across the harbor from Sea Street to the Public Landing area. Another part of the new sewer main on Main Street has already been installed.

In addition to the sewer line, drainage and water main, work is taking place on Elm Street. The sewer, drainage and water line work is taking place in several phases between April 12 and 23.

The town's website Downtown Construction Update provides a detailed map of where the construction is, timeframes for each part of the work, and a color-coded system showing locations of the new sewer line, stormwater system and also a new water main.
