Scheduled to start on Monday, July 31, construction will begin on Locust St (from Betsy’s Way to Worthington Ave) to improve the service and liability of the municipal water distribution system. This project will involve the installation of new water mains, fire hydrants, and valves. This work is anticipated to take three months to complete.
During this project, detours may be in place with detour signage posted directing traffic toward Popular and Wenham Streets to avoid the work zone area. Motorists should plan for delays and detours in the area after work starts.
On the days when construction is ongoing, it is important not to have any cars parked in the roadway between the hours of 7:00 AM and 4:00 PM. “No Parking” signs will be posted in advance of construction, and parking restrictions will remain in effect until construction is complete for that day.
We apologize for any inconvenience you may incur during this process. If you have any questions, please contact the Danvers Engineering Division at 978-777-2668.
