TRAFFIC DELAYS | CLOSURE OF CLIFFORD AVENUE FROM PENNSYLVANIA TO MELROSE | The Water Services Division will be closing Clifford Avenue from Pennsylvania to Melrose Street today, Thursday, November 30th to pave Claremont Ave. City crew will also be paving Melrose, Crescent, and Allston in the next three days. Paving will affect these streets. This will complete the water main replacement project for Claremont, Melrose, Crescent, and Allston.
The Water Main Replacement Program is a preventative, pro-active plan to replace and improve our aging infrastructure before unexpected breaks or disruptions occur. By replacing sections of pipeline we will conserve water, reduce water leaks, and improve your water service and water quality. Replacing water mains costs approximately $750,000 per mile.
Thank you for your patience during this time.
