Planned Construction Activities for the Week of August 19, 2019
During the week of August 19, 2019, C. Naughton Corp is tentatively scheduled to perform the following construction activities:

  • Two crews will be installing water main between the Five Corners Intersection and Poquanticut Avenue. Please note that in an effort to minimize traffic congestion, one crew will be working overnight on Monday from 12:00 AM to 8:00 AM in the intersection of Five Corners in an effort to clear the intersection before peak daytime traffic begins. Residences and businesses along Foundry Street will be turned over to the temporary water system and will be notified of a short-term service interruption by the contractor. 
  • Crews will also focus on general site housekeeping and maintenance; weather permitting, trench restoration activities may occur during the week.
Traffic Note 
 
With the work extending from Five Corners to Poquanticut Avenue, eastbound traffic will no longer be allowed on Foundry Street. For example, a left-turn movement from Poquanticut Avenue onto Foundry Street is no longer possible. Similarly, local traffic from South Street, Gaslight Lane, Lamplighter Lane, and residences along Foundry Street will be directed to the west when entering Foundry Street. This condition will also remain in effect for the foreseeable future 24 hours a day, 7 days per week. 

Foundry Street Detour

The Foundry Street detour is operational and will remain in place 24 hours a day, 7 days per week until the winter months when it will be deactivated. It may be necessary to reactivate the detour in the spring of 2020 for roadway restoration activities. Traffic monitoring will continue throughout the project, and adjustments will be made as necessary. 

Construction activities will be performed Monday through Friday between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Please plan ahead for travel and expect delays. The Town of Easton appreciates your patience during this construction project and reminds everyone to please drive safely.

Sewer Service Information Form
ChrisMunroeComplete and return the sewer service information form, which was previously available at the May 29, 2019 Neighborhood Meeting. The form can be accessed here: Sewer Service Information Form

This form is necessary to allow your sewer service pipe to be installed at the correct location along your property line. You can email the completed form direct to Chris Munroe at MunroeC@peercpc.com. If you have any questions, or need assistance in filling out the form, please do not hesitate to contact Chris at (802) 598-1155. During construction, the Project Site Representative, Chris, may request access to your home to help locate your existing sewer line / septic pipe. His photo is displayed for safety reasons. We do not recommend letting anyone into your home unless you’ve verified who they are.

Benefits to the Community
The neighborhood’s reliance on individual wastewater septic systems has hindered growth within the area. The newly installed wastewater system will allow for the stimulation of economic growth and development; breathing new opportunities for undeveloped properties and making the overall environment more welcoming.

An additional benefit of the project is that it will address failing or compromised septic systems reducing the risk of contaminating local groundwater supplies. This provides an opportunity for:

Construction Activities - Installation of sewer piping on Foundry Street.
  • Environmental benefits for the valuable resource areas.

  • Failing or compromised septic systems.

  • Spurring economic growth & development by reuse and infill.

  • Capitalizing on undevelopable parcels.

Potential Challenges
The project to install a sanitary sewer collection system from Roberts Drive along Route 106 down Foundry Street to the Five Corners area will result in one-way traffic along Route 106 during most of Phase II construction. The greatest amount of traffic is anticipated to occur during morning commuting hours.

Phase II of the Five Corners Sewer Project will include the following impacts, which may cause a temporary disturbance to you or your business:

  • Temporary traffic detours (temporary traffic lights will be installed at each end of Highland Street to help regulate traffic.)

  • Temporary service interruptions - you will receive a minimum of 24 hours advance notification of any planned service interruptions associate with this work.

  • Please contact us if you have any regularly scheduled medical services, deliveries, etc. so that we may coordinate these service with you during construction.

  • We are interested in creating minimal disruption while we work to provide access to local businesses throughout the project and will post additional signs to help customers access the stores, shops and restaurants.
