The City of Portsmouth Department of Public Utilities will soon begin replacement of the existing water and sanitary sewer mains along a portion of Constitution Avenue from approximately North Street to Ann Street. In general, this work will be confined to excavation of the roadway for installation of the pipes, manholes, and various connections. Upon completion of the utility work, this portion of Constitution Avenue will be repaved.
The project was awarded to Gaston Brothers with an anticipated mobilization at the beginning of May. The total construction time for this project is two months. Unfortunately, construction of this magnitude can be disruptive. However, the City and Gaston Brothers will work very hard to minimize disruptions. Construction activity will be limited to Monday through Friday from 7:30 am to 5:00 pm. However, there will be a maximum of three scheduled water service interruptions as the contractor replaces the water lines. This work will occur between the hours of midnight and 6 am and you will be notified in advance.
